The song, released this month, is a creation of Dr. Scot Brown, a scholar of African American Studies at UCLA, the author of numerous books and other publications, and an indie musical artist, songwriter and producer. In addition to Fred, it features vocalists Kijana Crues, Stephon Ferguson and Alex Parris. Click here to see the video on YouTube. Click here to see a mini-documentary about the song on facebook.
