"I Wish I Knew How It Feels to be Free" performed by GMCW

On this anniversary of the freeing of the enslaved people whom should have always been free, we are sharing our performance of "I Wish I Knew How It Feels to Be Free" from 'Let Freedom Sing' (March 2019). The Black community continues to experience many forms of oppression, reminding us of the need for continued work for racial justice. We sing in solidarity with those facing injustice, and will continue to do so until everyone is treated equally and fairly.

Happy Holidays from DC’s Different Drummers!! 🎶🎺🥁🎷🚩🌈
Due to C19, this is the first year in more than a decade without an LGBT Veterans Day Observance at Congressional Cemetery. But we look back with great appreciation to the moving performances of the Chorus under Director Thea Kano at the 2015 Observance when the Veterans Administration cenotaph to WWII veteran and father of the modern gay rights movement Frank Kameny was dedicated.
Separated but not divided, DC’s Different Drummers plays on with friends from the LE***an & Gay Band Association. Have a safe and Happy Halloween and see you at the DC High Heels Race next year!! 🎃 👠 👻🔮🤖🦇🍂
