Rage Against The Machine frontman and one of the most talented guitarists of the 21st century, Tom Morello, posted a recent photo on his official Instagram account and showed his mother’s support for the black community.

Despite being a white-colored woman, Morello’s mom is fighting for the black people for almost 30 years, and she’s the long-time member of African American civil rights organization, Illinois Urban League.

Here is the letter from Tom:

“My 96 years old mom has been a tireless advocate for Black Lives her whole life. From being a foreign student advisor at the University of Illinois to teaching in Kenya and supporting the anti-colonial movement there, to teaching African Studies and bringing a radical perspective to a white conservative high school for 30 years, to being a member of the Illinois Urban League and campaigning for civil rights, to helping homeless African American men get their GED at the Salvation Army, to telling anybody who came at our family with any racist garbage to go straight to hell, to arming me with pride & confidence, to being a lifelong proponent of racial justice and ruthless critic of racist police.

Proud to stand with her today, as always, in solidarity in the fight for a more just and humane country & planet.”
