The Peace Poets: Sound Mix
Abraham Velazquez Jr.
Water Got No Enemy
My name is Abraham Velazquez Jr. I am one of the 5 members of The Peace Poets. . As 5 MC’s, social justice activists, and educators from The Bronx, New York, all with degrees in higher education, who visited Ferguson while touring our album throughout the Northeast and Midwest this summer, we would love to contribute two songs we wrote to the discussion.
Both songs directly address police brutality in our country, and the 2nd one, a single from our latest album, State of The Art, has an intro by Frank Graham, the father of Ramarley Graham who was murdered by the NYPD 2 years ago.
