"Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."What more is there to say about the unconscionable outcome of the George Zimmerman trial for the cold-blooded murder of Trayvon Martin? But where words happen to escape us, music speaks volumes and relays the myriad of emotions that we here at SoulBounce feel about the not guilty verdict. Music is the balm that heals our broken hearts and serves as the therapy we need as we try to make sense out of this nonsense. A number of us on staff came together to compile a Spotify playlist of songs that sum up our feelings on this Hot 16: SoulBounce's No Justice, No Peace Suite that includes tracks by an array of artists across a few genres. Press play to hear salient selections by Public Enemy, Arrested Development, Mos Def, Jill Scott, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Gil Scott-Heron, Sam Cooke, Donny Hathaway and many more. These 16 songs won't reverse the jury's decision, bring the deceased back nor rewrite history, but they may aid you to express your rage, anger, sadness and resolve to work toward a future where justice can, and maybe one day will, prevail.
-- Martin Luther King, Jr.
