FM Supreme Video Premiere "Untitled, In the Beginning Black"

This week, as part of Black History Month commemorations, international poet, performer, and peace activist Jessica "FM Supreme" Disu has released her new video, "Untitled, In the Beginning Black," a stirring piece that celebrates Blackness in all of its shapes, forms and complexities.

"Untitled, In the Beginning Black" is featured on FM Supreme's new album, which will provide the music soundtrack for "From Abolish The Police to Reimagining Peace," a forthcoming documentary by FM and the Chicago International Youth Peace Movement. In conjunction with the video's release, a Crowd Rise campaign has been launched to support development of the documentary project.

FM delivered a stunning performance of "Untitled, In the Beginning Black" during last month's "MLK Now 2017" event.
