Just months after wowing listeners with her 2017 album Strange Woman, Bates reminds everyone of the roots that grounds her with the re-release of her critically acclaimed project, For Colored Folk.

Hailed by the Riverfront Times Newspaper as “a navigation through spiritual, social and political minefields— a crossroads of intersectional issues that she attacks head-on while aiming straight for the gut,” with “a brash vibe that respects the time and intelligence of her peers and fans alike”, For Colored Folk is a concept album like none other; resonating with anyone exhausted of the racial, social and political injustices plaguing the country.

Just as impactful today as it was 1 year ago, Bates’ For Colored Folk album is a mantra for the human condition of continuously triumphing through persecution.
