Soldiers of Piece: A Tribute to Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.

Soldiers of Piece: A Tribute to Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King Jr.

Creating this piece was an intensely emotional experience, as I delved into the experiences of people fighting for important human values. The massive scale of the collective sacrifices made by previous generations that fought for my right to be who I am today as a person of color brings me to tears. From the power of historical footage, to the familiar anthems of resistance in “We Shall Overcome” and “Raghupati Raghav Rajaram”, to my poetry in rap form, this composition is my humble attempt at building bridges between people of different cultures, finding common ground between their struggles, thereby highlighting a worldview of intersectionality.
