Since this is Fathers Day, we have to begin with Song For My Father, this time a funky version from Victor Wooten. From there we pay tribute to the Black Live Matters movement and the struggle for racial justice and equality. Avery Sharpe interprets the history of the movement in his album 400. Blanchard, Louis and Croker do their tributes to the cry of "I Can't Breathe" with their original compositions. Glasper and Preminger provide more  tributes to the cause.

I didn't have time to get to everyone, but I hope this sampling of local music plays to the HARTstrings of In The Groove Listeners here and all over the world.
