Kingdom Roots won Macalester’s first Funkathon, an overnight musical competition held Feb. 19-20. Funkathon challenged composers, performance and multimedia artists, and creators to write and produce an original piece of music or multimedia presentation up to four minutes in length. Kingdom Roots composed “Still Standing” and performed it in a moving music video that captured themes of struggle and hope derived from the Black History Month showcase, From Our Lips.
