Mavis Staples If All I Was Was Black Limited 180gram Vinyl LP

Mavis Staples is an American Music legend. She was at the forefront of the civil rights movement in the 1960ís, as singer for the legendary gospel group, The Staples Singers. Mavis, along with her father, Pops, and siblings marched and worked alongside Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on the fight for equality in this country. In December 2016, Mavis went to Washington, DC to receive the coveted Kennedy Center Honors from President Obama, with whom she has had a long standing friendship. Mavis invited Wilco frontman and dear friend, Jeff Tweedy as her guest for the weekendís festivities. The two spent hours discussing the current events and how todayís fight for equality is very similar to those in the 60ís. Inspired by these events, Mavis and Jeff got together and wrote Mavisí new album, If All I Was Was Black, produced by Jeff Tweedy.
