Pauline Jean pays homage to the ones that came before us on “Ain’t I A Woman (Singing Truth)” [VIDEO]

By Tayo Odutola Word Is Bond

jazz vocalist Pauline Jean shares a heartfelt single/video “Ain’t I A Woman (Singing Truth)” on the 55th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act, a law signed to end racial discrimination in voting.

The piano-driven (played by Axel Laugart ) track is a pure showing of Jean’s soothing and commanding vocals that grips the soul with every line. Inspired by the activist Sojourner Truth and the often forgotten history of the role black women played in the women’s suffrage movement, Jean takes an unapologetic look at the way black women were unfairly treated throughout history. She ponders on the situation with lines “…That man in black said you can’t have as much as me/ he said ’cause Christ wasn’t a woman and that was his logic you see…!” and gives a rousing response with the following “…where did your Christ come from? he came from God and a woman/ man had nothing to do with his son…”

Jean doesn’t hold back and tackles the racial prejudices that have contributed to Black women’s invisibility for centuries. This is something that many might have refused to talk about but Jean is more than willing to shed the light for those who are not in the know.

For the visuals, Jean teams up with director/choreographer Janet Huey and producer Sydaiya Rehema who help bring the singer’s message to the screen with their expressive concept. The use of the black ballet dancers is a metaphor for black synergy and the need for both parties to work together to achieve their common goals.

“Ain’t I A Woman” (Singing Truth) serves as a re-introduction and re-imagining of the core essence of Sojourner Truth, a strong and unapologetic Black woman.  She was a very powerful force in the fight for justice and equality for both African Americans and all women in the United States.

"X-Men: The Animated Series" Producer Has Talked With Disney About A Revival

X-Men: The Animated Series was a fan favorite in the 90s. Of all the amazing superhero cartoons of that era, X-Men stuck out. The team of Wolverine, Cyclops, Storm, Jean Grey, Nightcrawler, Gambit, Rogue, Beast, Colossus, Jubilee, and Professor X created a new generation of X-Men fans. Its popularity is what led to Fox pushing forward with an X-Men live-action film. Now, according to IGN, we have some answers to the rumors about a revival of the series. 

During a virtual Wizard World panel this past Friday, a producer from the cartoon show revealed that Disney is in talks to revive the series. Larry Houston, who also directed episodes, stated, “We’ve had talks [with Disney], but that’s about it. We’ve made conversation and it’s up to them to make the decision, but we’ve let them know that we’re all available for whatever they want to do in the future.”

Houston, who is retired at the moment, also told viewers about his dream project. “If we could do a special, a one-off episode, or a five-part episode. Whatever they wanted to do if we had all the original team. That’s what I would come out of retirement for.” It looks like the ball is in Disney’s court, as it often is.

Nate Rose and Mick Jenkins reflect on life with the “Golden Rule”

By Tayo Odutola Word Is Bond

Cleveland, TN, raised Nate Rose is not new to TWIB and has delivered solid releases over the years. His new single “Golden Rule” continues in the same vein and showcases Rose’s vulnerability with a relatable context.

Backed by a dark and melancholic backdrop, Rose takes the listenr on a deeply emotional journey that captures the essence of a man trying to find his footing in this world. Rose’s laidback and honest lyrics such as “…so bad on the inside, give it anything to make it stop then/ squeeze my arm hard till it broke skin, felt relieved for a brief second but it didn’t stop then…” really set the mood and gives us a vivid image of what he is really going through. Along for the ride is Mick Jenkins who provides a moody chorus that adds a nice soulful touch to the track.
