Music of the Week | Childish Gambino

In a week that has had Kanye West declare that 400 years of slavery was a ‘choice’ and Ta-Nehisi Coates rebuking and putting him in the list of black people wanting ‘white freedom’ alongside Michael Jackson in The Atlantic, Donald Glover a.k.a ‘Childish Gambino’ stole all the thunder, with his surreal and grim depiction of what is actually like being black in the United States. Here is the link to the video and a few reviews:
