Where’s Our Climate Anthem?
Social movements are often bolstered by anthems, songs that help unite people and remind them of what they are fighting for. In this episode, we take a look at one of the most famous anthems in US history. We ask what lessons it holds for the climate movement. And we investigate: does the climate movement already have an anthem? Reporter Kendra Pierre-Louis scours the charts to find what’s out there and brings the best (and worst) contenders to hosts Alex and Ayana. In the process, we talk to a climate ambassador who also happens to be a global rap superstar, Mr. Worldwide. Plus, Ayana drops a few bars. Special thanks to our guests, Dr. Shana L. Redmond, Greg Camp, and Pitbull Take Action If music is your thing, try your hand at making a climate anthem for your own climate organizing efforts. Not musical?
