Being offered is the latest visual offering from The Roots. In this clip, the Philadelphia collective perform “Ain’t Gonna Let Nobody Turn Me Around” which is featured on the soundtrack to the film Soundtrack For a Revolution, which highlights the story of the civil rights movement and the struggles fought by young African-American activists.
