The 1865’s video for ‘Get Out’ tackles the Blackface problem

If you haven’t heard of The 1865, they’re a Black punk band out of New York City founded by hip-hop journalist Sacha Jenkins (he also directed Showtime’s Wu-Tang Clan documentary, Of Mics and Men), who plays guitar and bass, featuring Jason “Biz” Lucas on drums, Carolyn “Honeychild” Coleman on lead vocals and guitar, and Flora Lucini on bass.

The music is as pro-Black as you can get backed by the rhythmic stylings reminiscent of the late ‘70s/early ‘80s punk sound, but with a modern twist. They released their debut album, Don’t Tread on We!, back in January and it’s starting to create a bit a buzz.

Check out their latest video, “Get Out” for a taste of what the band has to offer along with the message they’re bringing to the masses.
