Freedom Rap (Panther Theme) From 1995 Soundtrack to the film “Panther”…

The all-star recording of both the song and solemn black-and-white video for “Freedom” took place directly after the American Music Awards in 1995. According to its promotional single’s liner notes, the song was a tribute to women of the past like Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Rosa Parks, Coretta Scott King, Shirley Chisholm, and Angela Davis who played major roles in black resistance, as well as the empowerment of women of the present.
