Emmett Williams – Black Boys In America video

Singer-songwriter Emmett Williams is driven to create in many different outlets as an accomplished multimedia artist, documentary filmmaker and exhibited photographer in addition to his multiple albums. Later this month he tours England in support of his latest release SHINE, a collection of highlights from his previous four CDs. For this album Williams recorded a new version of “Black Boys In America”, his version of Sinead O’Connor’s song “Black Boys On Mopeds”, obviously inspired by the recent headlines and anguish over the Trayvon Martin killing. The music video for Black Boys In America furthers the message of the song by connecting America’s racial tensions to the persistent problem of poverty.
