Take A Knee
As bell hooks says, “Love is profoundly political. Our deepest revolution will come when we understand this truth.” We at Prison Prophets: Songs from the Heart of the Penitentiary are showing up for that revolution, along with the incarcerated musicians of SCI-Phoenix, on our forthcoming album, Songs in the Key of Free. Listen to the truth of “Take a Knee”, by Manchino Santiago, an anthem for our nation.

“Love is at the root of our resistance”—these are the words of Colin Kaepernick echoed in “Take a Knee”, written and performed by Manchino Santiago and featuring Zeek Burse.
