Following the original release last year, Sharam offers up an empowering edit of his sublime Exodus track, this time bringing activist James Baldwin to the table.
“I’m honoured to present this reworked version of my 2019 track “Exodus” featuring Baldwin’s remarks from his famous debate with William F. Buckley in 1965 at Cambridge University about Race In America. His powerful words illustrate the divide in accomplishing the American dream, something that is still present in today’s world and something that has resonated with me.
I hope this record can help shed light on his work and inspire others to discover his important work. I will donate all proceeds from this song to Hampshire College’s James Baldwin Scholars Program, a fund which supports students who have great potential but who, because they have attended under-resourced and underperforming schools, might otherwise lose the opportunity to attend college.” – Sharam
