The song “Education is Not a Crime” was inspired by the #EducationisNotaCrime campaign, which aims to highlight educational discrimination in Iran, most frequently aimed at the members of the Baha’i Faith, and inspire individuals to take action.
The song was written by Phoenix Baha’i Hip-Hop artist Colby Jeffers, features Cameroonian singer Lucy Brand, and was produced by Cameroonian music producer D-Grey. Colby aims to use music to inspire and uplift humanity, as well as educate and raise awareness on important social issues.
Colby’s also created a lyric video which you can view here.

Naysan is passionate about using the arts and media to explore the teachings of the Baha’i Faith. Back in 2011, Naysan started up the Baha’i Blog project, channeling his experiences in both media and technology companies to help create a hub for Baha’i-inspired content online.
What a wonderful song. Thank you for sharing it with me and my friends.
