Frustrated, angry, and exhausted Charmagne Tripp & The High drop new single “Humanity” on Juneteenth.

Inspirited By Injustice

On May 25, 2020, the murder of George Floyd brought people out from the safety of their homes during a worldwide pandemic to the streets to protest his murder by police officers in Minnesota. So closely following the murders of Amhaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor, this outcry for justice was undeniable.  

 

Charmagne was awakened in the middle of the night with lyrics that would express what so many have felt for so long. She shared them with her bandmates and they collaborated to write “Humanity” a raw and honest outpouring of the pain, ire, and weariness felt by the Black community around systemic racism and how it plays out in the over-policing and unjust murders of Black and Brown people.
