The second solo album from the former Carolina Chocolate Drops singer and multi-instrumentalist journeys down the ‘freedom highway,’ from slavery through the Civil Rights era and on to today’s Black Lives Matter movement. Themed as an oral/musical history of the African-American experience, the mostly acoustic songs are impassioned, reflective and inspiring. A Top of the World in #126.
