Amtrak 71 probably has something to do with how it felt to be an American living abroad during the 2016-17 year. Amtrak 71 is the train route along the Mississippi River from Chicago to New Orleans. These two capitals of black America gave rise to music of resistance, protest, and a terrifying unrelenting joy in the face of absurdity.
