Tuesday Morning Truth: New Video from Reflection Eternal “Ballad of the Black Gold”

Reflection Eternal “Ballad of the Black Gold” from Sam Ellison on Vimeo.

If you need some Tuesday morning truth, I highly encourage you to check out this brand new video for the Reflection Eternal track “Ballad of the Black Gold”. The song is one of my favorites off their new album, and the video was directed by a very talented up and coming filmmaker named Sam Ellison around my neighborhood in Brooklyn. Plus, it brings a timely– and feminist– message about the negative consequences that can come as a result of our collective dependence on oil- the BP oil spill in the Gulf being one of them. For more on the negative effects of the oil spill on women, check out this article on reproductive health concerns in the aftermath of the BP oil spill.
*On a completely non-serious note, if you look closely at this video you may or may not catch a cameo by a certain Feministing contributor. *Shameless self-promotion alert* Enjoy!
