“I will sing of steadfast love and justice. To you, O Lord, I will sing praise.” – Psalm 101:1
LySaundra Campbell is the Founder of Social Soundtrack LLC, a company dedicated to Black music, social liberation, healing, and resilience. Before launching Social Soundtrack, she worked in the nonprofit sector for a decade at the collegiate, local, state and national levels addressing issues related to gender-based violence. After an experience with burnout she sought to develop creative solutions that combined her background in music education with social advocacy in a way that was culturally relevant and healing-centered.
"When you get these jobs that you have been so brilliantly trained for, just remember that your real job is that if you are free, you need to free somebody else. If you have some power, then your job is to empower somebody else." - Toni Morrison
