A Deeper Meaning Behind Confederate Statues

Season #2

You may know her for those beautiful jazz vocals, but Dara Starr Tucker has stepped forward to educate and obliterate the false narrative around Confederate statues and the history of Jim Crow oppression in the United States. Find Dara on TikTok @darastarrtucker for a mixture of fun and informative content, then take a listen to her latest album, Dreams of Waking: Music For a Better World. Her original Do We Sleep? is mixed with covers of songs with deeper meaning below the surface, like Wade in the Water, an old gospel tune that was a secret code that taught escaped slaves that dogs would lose their scent of them if they used the rivers and streams for safe passage.
