The Dixie Chicks Rename to The Chicks

The Chicks

The Chicks from Texas in a selfless act dropped their highly recognizable moniker ‘Dixie’ from the band’s name in recognition of the negative historical connotations it espouses. This act of defiant resistance is an in your face statement to those who thought they could beat the Chicks down for braking with country musics previous white racist and homophobic hegemony.

The accompanying byline on the single “March March” asks this: “If your voice held no power, they wouldn’t try to silence you.” – unknown.

This powerful question includes images of many world youth leaders and for us, an image of Black Trans Lives matters with the Black lives matters square behind it. We as a community owe an unrepayable debt of gratitude to the courageous Black Lives Matter movement for without this movement our voices would be so much fainter.
