Lady Antebellum changed its name after learning the history of Antebellum. I have no idea what Antebellum means to be honest. The dictionary definition of antebellum literally means “before the war,” coming from the Latin phrase, ante bellum. But to further break it down Antebellum is also an aesthetic – architecture and fashion. The issue is that it was created by slave labor.
The band says, “We are regretful and embarrassed to say that we did not take into account the associations that weigh down this word referring to the period of history before the Civil War, which includes slavery,” Lady A wrote, of the band’s blind spots at the time.
We also hear the discussion is moving in many directions. Some are calling that the rock band Guns N’s Roses drops Guns as before the Civil War ended, state “Slave Codes” prohibited slaves from owning guns. The crowd is urging DSP’s to pull tracks that subjugate women from both male and female artists because slavery brought women under control and dominance. How far will this go? What I do know is that blackout is moving beyond Tuesday.
