Ric Wilson has shared a new track titled “Fight Like Ida B and Marsha P.” Produced by Norbert Bueno, the song is named after civil rights leader Ida B. Wells and LGBTQ+ activist Marsha P. Johnson. “I hear people quoting a lot of black men who were freedom fighters, which is valid,” Wilson wrote on Twitter. “But when I think about next level courage to ball your fist up and look bigotry, racism, sexism, homophobia, and transphobia right in the eye and fight against it, I feel like black women like Ida B. Wells and non-binary folks like Marsha P. Johnson are of the bravest of us all and if I’ma fight any injustice I wanna have the courage of freedom fighters like them. The liberation of black womxn and black trans womxn lead to the liberation of all black people.”
Earlier this year, Ric Wilson and Terrace Martin released the collaborative They Call Me Disco EP.
