The Miseducation Of Lauryn Hill 20th Anniversary Tour

Community,

Healing is a process. As we uproot long-standing negative ideas and policies designed from places of fear and the need to excessively control our communities, we need to make sure our discussions regarding solutions are clear, reality-based and in the spirit of de-escalation for all.

Read full statement on Ms. Lauryn Hill’s Twitter page.

The rules of engagement need to change, and most, if not all people, need to rehabilitate the mental programming that we’ve been indoctrinated with.

There needs to be an acknowledgment that these mental attitudes are deeply embedded in the psyches of many many Americans, regardless of race, about who deserves to feel safe and who doesn’t.

There also needs to be honest dialogue about the different needs of people without defensiveness and insensitivity. That kind of nuanced conversation needs to be led by informed, compassionate, and no-nonsense communicators who can both advocate for their own collective security, while considering the collective needs of people who occupy a different space and vantage point.

We need highly capable people who can help rebalance an economic paradigm that was born from a system of free labor and exploitation, and only works as long as certain people are excluded from the full promise of freedom.

We have the potential to create new educational paradigms and community economic support systems that help remove people from the CONDITIONS of desperation that lead to violence and looting. Capitalism should be challenged to evolve.

Community, we have the know-how and the intellectual and spiritual resources to help give birth to a new world that promotes more balance and thereby better health for everyone. My goal is to help connect some of this energy so we can help set in motion the ground work that so many have already begun to lay.

Melina Matsoukas heard an older recording of a chant/song of mine called “Guarding the Gates,” she asked to include it in her film Queen and Slim. We added to the original in the form of this new version. “Guarding the Gates” is about protecting your most authentic and genuine self. Not a small message at all. ♥️

My sincere apologies Glasgow for the late show and shorter set. I appreciate the energy and support I did receive from the great crowd, and the patience of the promoters. I hope to come back and make it up to the Glasgow audience. It is only with great respect and Love for my art and the audience that I take the stage every performance. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time in Europe, the crowds have been great and incredibly receptive. I look forward to my upcoming shows in Poland, Italy, Denmark, and the UK. Again, thank you, and my sincerest apologies for that shorter set.

Respectfully, ♥️
