Video: Flobots on Faith - The 'Rise' of New Music for New Movements

By Matt Hildreth 10-02-2008

Flobots are a Denver-based, hip-hop/rock alternative group, whose powerful activist lyrics explore issues from globalization and poverty to war and peace. Their influences include civil rights activist (and Sojourners contributing editor) Vincent Harding, who has a cameo in their newest music video, "Rise." I had a chance to sit down with them before their sold-out show at the 9:30 Club here in D.C. to talk about how faith shapes their progressive politics.
