Lauryn Hill Dedicates Her Song ‘Black Rage’ to Ferguson


It's an "old sketch" of a song she's been performing live for a few years.

The emotional song is a reworking of “My Favorite Things” from The Sound of Music, taking the originally upbeat and flowery song and transforming it into something much deeper and darker. “Black rage is founded on two-thirds a person,” Hill sings. “Rapings and beatings and suffering that worsens / Black human packages tied up in strings / Black rage can come from all these kings of things.”
