Music Monday: “Lean on Me,” by Playing for Change

I admit, after this weekend’s events in Charlottesville, Virginia, I have been struggling to find the right song for Music Monday.  I considered “Man in Black,” but I’ve used it twice (here and here).  I posted “Blowin’ in the Wind” and “If I Had a Hammer” just the other day.

My heart is sore.  I have been angry and concerned, by turns, pretty much since last November.  I feel like Cassandra, with people telling me I was “overreacting” … only to be proven 100 percent correct.

Over the weekend, a woman named Heather Heyer was murdered by a white supremacist who drove his automobile, at speed, into a group of peaceful counterprotestors.  Nineteen other people were injured.  A young Black man named Deandre Harris was cornered in a parking garage and beaten with bats and clubs by white supremacists; the images are eerily reminiscent of the Klansmen beating up Freedom Riders in the 1960s.  I don’t want to share the photos here; you’ve probably seen them anyway.

So, I say all of that to say this:  I struggled to figure out what to share today.  And finally, I realized that I wanted to share something by Playing For Change.  This group of musicians, from all around the world, make recordings and raise money to build music schools for disadvantaged kids — again, from all over the world.

We need to lean on one another during times like this.
