“Say It Loud! Songs of Protest and Uprising” is a video pay-per-view (freewill donation) concert project by the Corvid Ensemble which consists of songs, photography, and spoken word performance. We are responding to current events of racial injustice and police brutality in the United States using the power of music and art, as well as providing some historical context on the genre of the protest song. We hope that the video will encourage people to exercise their First Amendment rights whether through peaceably assembling, petitioning the government, and/or speaking out against injustices. Each artist will submit a video which will be produced into a compilation video. The video will premiere on the Corvid Ensemble YouTube Channel (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzXisUNRGTX2lJr69B2UBLA) on Saturday, September 26 at 6:30pm PDT, with a special meet-the-artists Zoom session at 6:00 for those who have pre-registered.

The video will be available for online viewing through December 2020, and a link to the video will be provided for a donation of any amount. To keep this accessible to all, those whose circumstances do not allow them to donate will be sent a viewing link upon request. The total donations will be split evenly amongst the artists.
