On Thursday June 19th, 2014 we released the Colored Girls Hustle Hard Mixtape. This marked Juneteenth  – the anniversary of the enforcement of the Emancipation Proclamation and a commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. In the spirit of freedom and liberation, the Colored Girls Hustle Hard Mixtape is amplifying the voices of women of color through music.

The Mixtape features songs about personal and political freedom: overcoming fears, exercising courage, passion-filled and purpose-driven hustle, pleasure politics, self-care and more. The Mixtape features tracks that name the ways in which our freedom is compromised: through surveillance, student loan debt, fear, racism, and more. Other tracks celebrate the creative ways we move as visionaries within our communities.

More than that, the Mixtape uses humor and parody to deliver thoughtful and heart-felt messages of affirmation and inspiration. 

DMV where you at?! Join us tonight for the Colored Girls Hustle Hard Mixtape release event in D.C. We’ve got performances, storytelling, and, of course, a listen of the Mixtape. FREE. Family friendly. Fun. :-)
