With civil rights and current footage of struggles, Anne E. DeChant drives the point of the song home as she asks “what kind of change am I?” From a mostly white perspective of support, Anne E. DeChant throws her musical hat into the ring of protest songs.
In order to write “Change,” Frye and I had to look at ourselves and ask tough questions. We are privileged. We know it. What are we supposed to do about the history of inequity, violence and indifference in our world? As we sing in the chorus, ‘What kind of change am I? What kind of change are you? — Anne E. DeChant
