Feministing Jamz video of the week: “The Greatest” by KING

The three talented ladies of KING are finally back!

KING are twin sisters Paris and Amber Strother, and “musical sister” Anita Bias – Paris produces, while Amber and Anita are the group’s main singers. Their 2011 EP The Story charmed the world, and ever since I’ve been waiting for a full length. The good news is that it’s coming – you can pre-order We Are KING now, and it will finally grace all our ears on February 5th.

Until then, you can satisfy your thirst for new KING jams by watching their newest video for the first single off the new album, The Greatest. A super fun 8-bit tribute to boxing great and racial justice/religious freedom champion Muhammad Ali, it’s especially good to see a video that pays homage to an accomplished Muslim in U.S. history given recent inflammatory comments by a certain presidential candidate with whose name I will not sully this joyous post. Check it out!

Verónica Bayetti Flores has spent the last years of her life living and breathing reproductive justice. She has led national policy and movement building work on the intersections of immigrants' rights, health care access, young parenthood, and LGBTQ liberation, and has worked to increase access to contraception and abortion, fought for paid sick leave, and demanded access to safe public space for queer youth of color. In 2008 Verónica obtained her Master’s degree in the Sexuality and Health program at Columbia University’s Mailman School of Public Health. She loves cooking, making art, listening to music, and thinking about the ways art forms traditionally seen as feminine are valued and devalued. In addition to writing for Feministing, she is currently spending most of her time doing policy work to reduce the harms of LGBTQ youth of color's interactions with the police and making sure abortion care is accessible to all regardless of their income.

Verónica is a queer immigrant writer, activist, and rabble-rouser.
