Indigo ATLien Raury continues to impress. He’s had a video, song, and mixtape honored here at Stereogum, and it seems he’s out for more. Earlier this year he threw his fashionable hat into the racial injustice conversation with the humble, hopeful Malik Shakur collaboration “Fly.” Today, it gets a literal, simple, and powerful video treatment by Malia Murray. 2D black-and-white animation chronicles important moments in black history, both uplifting and sorrowful, before a visual eulogy for some of the recent victims of police killings scrolls slowly across the screen for what seems like forever — so disheartening. But the hopefulness shines through in the end. Watch below.
It is unclear if/when “Fly” will land on an album from Raury.
