Watch Janelle Monáe perform “Hell You Talmbout” at Women’s March on Washington

Today was the Women’s March on Washington, a massive protest that went on in Washington, D.C. and a multitude of cities around the United States (and world), less than 24 hours after the inauguration of Donald Trump. When Janelle Monáe spoke at the event (“Get off our areolas; get off our vaginas,” she demanded), she and Jidenna led the crowd in a call-and-response performance of “Hell You Talmbout.” They were accompanied by the mothers of Trayvon Martin, Mohamed Bah, Eric Garner, Dontre Hamilton, and Jordan Davis. Watch a segment of her speech and the performance below.
