"It's rare that a song provides listeners with a history lesson. It’s even rarer still that a song would use a history lesson to shed light on some of its country’s most pressing issues, and provide a commentary and call to action. But that’s exactly what singer, writer, and spoken word artist Amy León does in her powerful song “Burning in Birmingham.” - Atwood Magazine
