Oakland, CA-based songwriter and electric guitar player Fantastic Negrito – aka Xavier Amin Dphrepaulezz – has announced the release of a new album and accompanying movie, White Jesus Black Problems.

Set for release on June 3, the project was inspired by the tale of the Grammy-winning artist’s seventh generation grandparents. Grandma Gallamore was a white Scottish indentured servant, while Grandfather Courage was an enslaved African American. The two lived in a common law marriage in Virginia in the 1750s, defying the era’s racist laws.
