babygotbacktalk Releases New Single & Video For “When They Go Low, We Go Six Feet Under”

New York’s babygotbacktalk has released a new single and an accompanying music video for their song “When They Go Low, We Go Six Feet Under.” The video centers around the¬†Say Her Name Movement, a campaign founded and led by Columbia and UCLA law professor and progenitor of intersectionality theory, Kimberl√© Crenshaw. The movement calls attention to police violence against black women, girls, and femmes and demands that their stories are included in calls for justice and media representations of police brutality.

babygotbacktalk had the following to say about the video and single:

“Our band’s video aims to advance the fulfillment of that demand. Vocalist/bassist G’Ra Asim has worked on the campaign as part of Professor Crenshaw’s staff for the past year, so using our platform in babygotbacktalk to uplift the Say Her Name movement struck us as a ripe opportunity to put intersectionality into practice. There is a long history of punk musicians raising awareness about police brutality, but the punk/alternative community’s engagement with the gendered and racial dimensions of state violence has left much to be desired. Though our music video is just one small step, babygotbacktalk hopes to play a role in addressing that void.”
