ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
A little more than a century ago, W.E.B. DuBois authored the powerful and important book, The Souls of Black Folk. Inside this classic volume, DuBois brings his "gentle reader" "beneath the veil" that covered the realities of the black experience in early 20th century America.

Today we have compiled The Souls of Poor Folk, a multimedia initiative which invites readers, listeners, and viewers to journey beneath the veil that hangs over the face of our nation (and indeed the entire world) and hides the scars and blemishes of poverty and homelessness.

Here, scholars, social service providers, and social commentators speak, teach, and question through their essays. Artists from a variety of musical genres challenge and illuminate through their songs. Candid interviews and powerful footage captured on film, together with the entire project, examine what is happening and what needs to be happening in order for real change to occur.

The Souls of Poor Folk is a joint effort by Greater Love Movement and Peace of Music that will engage listeners, viewers, and readers with thoughtful and challenging perspectives on the various aspects of poverty and homelessness in America. These messages are reaching audiences via the following vehicles: an original music compilation (CD), an original film documentary (DVD), a published collection of original essays, an interactive website, and a series of events featuring aforementioned materials. Through this coordinated effort, artists, scholars, social service providers, and other concerned citizens are reaching a large portion of our society and encouraging them to live their lives with care, concern, and remembrance of those who are far too often forgotten.

Philly Hip Hop

This CD has something for eveyone - including the poor and homeless
This CD is powerful not only because of the lyrics and music in general that you'll hear, but because of the cause these folks are serving. By purchasing this CD you will be educated about the reality of life under the poverty line AND you will be helping our brothers and sisters on the street because the proceeds are sent to organizations that serve the poor. Hip Hop, rock, folk, R&B, you'll find it all on here. And it's hot. The CD also features such nationally known notables like Gina Kaz and Rob Murat. It's good stuff for a good cause.

Good CD, well worth the price, brought back memories
The Souls of Poor Folk harkens back to the writings of W.E.B. DuBois'. The songs on this CD resonate with the anguish, loneliness, and struggle to survive that characterize the lives of the poor and the homeless. Purchasing this CD not only provides you with about an hour of terrific RnB music, but also provides you with a contribution to the Greater Love Movement. It's a win-win; you can't go wrong.
