Queen Latifah, MC Lyte, Jessica Care Moore-Poole, Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu, Me'Shell Ndegeocello, India.Arie, and Zap Mama use hip hop, as well as other genres of music, to empower not only Black women, but all people throughout the world. They give us inspiration for how music and the spoken word can evolve.

Another form of activism is using your dollars to purchase the work of people we like. For those who have never heard Zap Mama, these sistas are INCREDIBLE. Their basic sound is like Bobby Mcferrin goes back to the Motherland. Pure vocal ensemble. Especially recommend Adventures in Afropea Vol. I, Sabsylma, and Ancestry in Progress.
