The Resistance Revival Chorus (RRC) is a collective of more than 60 womxn (an alternative spelling of the English word “woman”) and non-binary (gender identities that are neither male nor female) singers who join together to breathe joy and song into the resistance, and to uplift and center womxn’s voices. Chorus members are touring musicians, film and television actors, Broadway performers, solo recording artists, gospel singers, political activists, educators, filmmakers, artists and more, representing a multitude of identities, professions, creative backgrounds and activist causes. They center womxn in music, and address how historically womxn have been marginalized in the music industry. The great artist and activist Harry Belafonte once said, “when the movement is strong, the music is strong,” and RRC attempts to live up to that call. The RRC calls for justice and equity for womxn across racial, ethnic, economic, sexual identity and religious lines. They aim to be intersectional in their feminism and reveal that all social justice issues overlap heavily with womxn’s issues; to harness the collective power of womxn to help change the world; to celebrate each other through song; to embrace Toi Dericotte’s idea of “joy as an act of resistance.”
