The Black mental health charity, Black Minds Matter UK, has teamed up with up-and-coming folk musician James Billett, in preparation for the release of his socially-conscious new single, ‘What Will They Say About Us’.
Black Minds Matter UK is a charity formed in the days following the murder of George Floyd, and in response to the deterioration of Black mental health the world over. They aim to provide free and accessible mental health resources and therapy for Black families in the UK, and support the conversation surrounding Black mental health, continuing to make it more relevant than it has been in the past.
James Billett will be promoting the essential work that this charity does, and also fundraising for them with the proceeds of this single, which sees him lamenting over the cruelty that human beings are capable of. The video was described by Black Minds Matter UK’s founder, Agnes Mwakatuma, as “powerful” and that it was “sure to draw attention to this essential cause.”
‘What Will They Say About Us’ is released on the 17th July 2020, and you can reach Black Minds Matter @blackmindsmatter.uk on Instagram.
