Inner City and Idris Elba released a powerful new music video for the title track of the Inner City album, We All Move Together, which was released earlier this year.
Inner City & Idris Elba – We All Move Together
The track, which features the powerful spoken word of UK actor, DJ/Producer Idris Elba, focuses primarily on the theme of unity. The video was filmed in Detroit with the help of hundreds of members of the Detroit Will Breathe movement. Detroit Will Breathe (D.W.B) is an integrated, youth-led militant organization fighting against police brutality and systemic racism in Detroit.
“This song and music video will forever embody the spirit of momentum by the people. When we all move together change becomes inevitable”Idris Elba
“With the challenges in Michigan, the US, and further afield, specific to what we are facing with the BLM movement, we deeply felt that we wanted to release a culturally significant and impactful video that not only embodies the message of the track but that also directly benefits the Detroit Will Breathe individuals and collectives on the frontline of the movement in the city. Our platform can shine a global light on the amazing work they do, and it takes the message of the track to an even higher place.,”We All Move Together.”Inner City
Jae Bass, speaks on behalf of D.W.B as one of their leaders, he is also seen in the video leading the chants
“Detroit is rich in political and cultural experiences and expressions of liberation. From Motown Records, the Labor Movement, and Aretha Franklin, to the Civil Rights and Black Power Movements, the 1967 Rebellion, and the birth of techno. We aspire to make Detroit once again space where liberation is expressed and experienced in transformative ways. Kevin Saunderson did this along with thousands of Black Detroiters when he helped birth the global movement that techno has become. The techno scene embodied the intentions of Black Detroiters looking to free themselves from an oppressive environment. Today that fight for freedom continues.”
Detroit Will Breathe has accomplished a list of achievements including; Mobilising for the release of Grace, a 15-year-old black child who was sent to jail for not completing her homework. The movement also demanded justice and answers for Priscilla Slater who was found dead in her jail cell. For additional information on Detroit Will Breathe, please visit their official website.
