Transcript for Singer Momo Boyd talks new EP ‘Black History Always’
Our next guest is a new artist who is part of a band consisting of her five siblings called infinity's song and their talents have impressed a few names you might have heard of in music such as, oh, Jay-Z who signed them to roc nation and Kanye west who said they're the future of music. And here to join us for the black history always, Momo Boyd. Hello. There's that big smile. How are you doing? I'm good. How are you? We are great today. It's good to see you, and tell us now, there's so much emphasis focused on black history and black history specific this or you've created a piece of art here, if you will. But your point is also black history is happening all the time. It's not between February 1st and February 28th. Yes, absolutely. A lot of times, we, especially in school, growing up, it's kind of inferred that black history is, you know, between February 1st and February 28th, and then you know, we see black and white images of martin Luther king Jr., and Malcolm X, which is amazing. But we neglect to realize that as long as black people are alive, and breathing, we're always making history, as long as we're speaking, and as long as we're creating music, as long as we're just being, you know, W're creating black history. At this very moment, it's black history. Every single moment, that black people are in existence, is black history. Momo, thank you so much for being with us. We want to let everyone know that "Black history always" EP is available tomorrow, and you know we promised everyone we will hear some of your piece so let's take a look at it now. There's always a story and there's always a story teller. One who must make a choice, but to tell the tale with truth as its only objective or to inject falsities or withhold knowledge for personal motives. For lifetimes we've been force fed those stories of our identities, by story tellers who seek to see us discouraged and defeated utterly. They told lies. Formed stereotypes. They predetermined and formulated the paths of our lives, cast in the roles we never auditioned for. We were roped into realities that were planned long before our thoughts werever formed, a red line drawn boldly around the perimeters they intended for us to go. And no further than that red line we -- we wiped it away and created for ourselves a blank page, a clean slate clear of any limitations or boxes, watching as the sun goes down, and with lights and dreams and older brothers, as the next generation, of our heritage. And I do not say this with arrogance, but the songs of my mther, that I have been encouraged, the unwavering courage of my sisters who refused to be despirited. Future daughters, harmless cycles go unrepeated, your expectations, but we are undefeated. I'm fascinated by musical families. Siblings. They grew up together. They've been making that music since they were children. Wow. That's amazing. Beautiful, powerful.
