Curtis Mayfield Tribute

Curtis Mayfield Tribute

Gospel-infused, socially conscious, politically conscious, soul driven, and an inspiration to generations, Curtis Mayfield’s music embodied a thought-provoking and passionate world view. From his early days as a backup singer and erstwhile songwriter to a champion of Black Pride and Black Capitalism, Curtis Mayfield’s rise from performing in his grandmother’s Traveling Soul Spiritualists’ Church to his last recording, 1995’s New World Order, was embellished with classic love songs and musically charged testaments to Civil Rights. His music resonates today: “Pushing”, “People Get Ready”, and “We’re a Winner”, We’ll be exploring his music in this week’s edition of Deeper Roots on KOWS and KRJF Community Radio for Sonoma County. Tune in on Friday mornings at 9 on KOWS or Friday evenings at 9 on KRJF.
