Rage Against The Machine have shared a new short documentary on race titled as Killing In Thy Name.
It was released in collaboration with international artists collective The Ummah Chroma, where the film follows a teacher as he educates a group of small children on the history of oppression in the United States.
“The following is a document of true events,” an intro to Killing In Thy Name reads. “Our aim is for this piece to be a fire escape from the fiction known as whiteness and a spring for discovery. Remember, the children are always watching.”
The track ‘Killing In The Name’ by Rage Against The Machine is used throughout the film.
“My mom [Mary Morello] is a white woman with a radical voice,” said Tom Morello. “For three decades she was a progressive teacher in a conservative high school inspiring students to challenge the system – in her actions and words she has always taught that racism must never be ignored and must always be confronted.”
