In this episode, Jose speaks to The Bengsons about Sovereignty Hymns, a series of spirituals they wrote in which they address a woman’s right to choose when it comes to reproductive liberty. The Hymns were first released by La Jolla Playhouse shortly after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade in the summer of 2022. Driven by powerful personal stories and The Bengsons’ exhilarating compositions, the songs became the alarm that reminds us that, as Abigail says, artists can be first responders. As always, a conversation with Abigail and Shaun is a balm for the soul, so enjoy and bask in their wisdom and light.
