Steve Arrington’s video for “Make A Difference” is autobiographical and a retrospective of several moments of Black achievement. The photos and video comprise Arrington in his younger days, as well as historical figures like Muhammad Ali, Sun Ra, the Wu-Tang Clan, Queen Latifah and snippets of the Black, Lives Matters protests. He also shares a piece of his story with the lyric about his great grandmother being a slave.
“Make A Difference” is from Arrington’s Down To The Lowest Terms: The Soul Sessions. The funk legend trail blazed with the band Slave in the ’70s and ’80s before going solo. After spending years dedicated to his spiritual goals he returned to music in 2009 with his Pure Thang album. His last album was Higher from 2013 in collaboration with Dam-Funk. The current album reveals his evolution over the times and the constancy of his creativity.
