NOW: Local artists receive recognition at city hall for ’Brighter Days’ music video

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- A couple weeks ago we showed you the video for a song called "Brighter Days." 

It's described as a unity song, created by the Milwaukee Coalition Against Hate, and quite a few Milwaukee performers pooled their talents to create it.

On Friday, June 12, those artists gathered at city hall for some official recognition on what has been declared "Brighter Days Day."

"A lot of times we talk a lot about our past, but we have to talk within our present and go to our future," said Milwaukee County Board Supervisor Sequanna Taylor. "So I truly thank Tracey Dent for this song, because Brighter Days is what we're going for."

"What I done is put out a call to action, and so many of these artists and I am so thankful that they are part of this -- this movement that we're doing right now, 'cause that's what it is, it's a movement for change," said Tracey Dent, Milwaukee Coalition Against Hate.
