MADE MUSIC TO UPLIFT CHICAGO “I want people to feel empowered. I want them to feel inspired. As rough as the days are, we have some changes to do. We have to start doing things ourselves, we can’t wait for anybody.” - COMMON PHOTO CREDIT: Chelsey Sincerray APJ Films One of the day’s most memorable performances was Common’s latest track, “Black America Again” after he invoked the names of AfricanAmerican shooting victims from Laquan McDonald to Philando Castile. This philanthropic festival empowered and educated black youth, reaffirming that indeed there are good things happening in urban Chicago. | 17
