Gospel legend Lecrae and Hip-Hop artist/author Sho Baraka spearhead the soundtrack for Our Daily Bread Ministries’ VOICES Collection presented documentary ‘Juneteenth: Faith & Freedom.’ Curated by Rasool Berry, Our Daily Bread Ministries’ Director of Partnerships & Content Development, the musical masterpiece, which boasts thirteen cohesive cuts, echoes the truth and revelation of how the recently recognized federal holiday Juneteenth came to be.
The project includes previously released singles “Where Do We Go,” and “Black As Heaven featuring Mag44.” Both are curated by Sho Baraka as well as “Black Reconstruction” – a posse cut with Lecrae and Propaganda. Additional guest features and production come by way of S.O., Andrea “Vocab” Sanderson, Carvena, Marqus Clae, Chill Vibes, Reflect, Mark Evan Diaz, Lucius B. Hoskins, J.Dot, Derek Minor, Swoope, theBeatbreaker, and Rivertown.
Highlighting the importance of the documentary with Rapzilla, Berry states:
“The first celebration of what has become known as Juneteenth took place at a church in Galveston, and I discovered that people who were closest to it understood their emancipation on spiritual terms. To really understand that story, we need to grasp their perspective on their own emancipation. The church is where the story starts, but that’s not where the faith component ends. The role of the Black church in establishing communities was really vital, I discovered.”
