Unlocking the Truth

Starting today and through this weekend, I’m going to post a series of inspiring video shorts about black musicians who are breaking boundaries, because... why not?

There are so many unbelievable fantastic and talented black musicians who are following their own paths and thinking “outside the box.”  Not only should they be wider known, but also, it all goes back to what S & A is all about - what defines black imagery and how it’s portrayed in the media.

Which leads me to today’s video about the heavy metal rock group Unlocking The Truth, who are Malcolm Brickhouse and Jarad Dawkins, two Flatbush Brooklyn six graders who, along with new bassist Alec Atkins, have caused an absolute sensation in the underground rock movement.

They’ve already appeared on W. Kamau Bell’s show Totally Biased on FX  (HERE), and their goal, according to their website (HERE), is to simply be the “world's best heavy metal bands, and with their music, they want to encourage their fans to just be themselves and not be intimidated by what people say.”  

All this means, of course, is that they have been totally ignored by the black media since “they don’t do what black people are supposed to do” (Though watch. Wanna bet they will now after we've done it because they have no imagination?)

So here’s the video about them created by The Avant Garde Diaries.
