Shreveport, Louisiana’s Seratones – fronted by the gospel-trained powerhouse frontwoman A.J. Haynes – will release their sophomore album POWER next month, and today they share an incredibly moving music video for the album’s title track. The Danielle Calodney-directed video highlights A.J.’s work as an equality and reproductive rights activist, as well as her work as a counselor at one of Louisiana’s last abortion clinics, and is dedicated to the late Sadie Roberts-Joseph. Filmed throughout three important, women-founded locations in Shreveport – the Calanthean Temple, which was a Black cultural hub during the Jim Crow-era; Hope Medical Group abortion clinic, where A.J. is a counselor; and The Confederate monument – “Power” is Seratones’ way of celebrating how far we have come, despite all the work there is left to do.
