Now Playing: V/A - Gilles Peterson Digs America
been a while since i posted some articles, so i wanted to do play catch-up regarding some pieces i read and/or heard last month:
first off, here's a great August Wilson article. a great playwright, a brilliant mind, losing August in October really got to me.
the death of Rosa Parks was also a sobering moment for me in October. i encourage you to check out this article from William Jelani Cobb, which reminds that the life of Rosa Parks was about much more than a galvanizing event on December 1, 1955. in fact, it wasn't the first time that blacks had disobeyed segregation laws, including Mother Rosa.
and then there's Project 21, a black conservative think tank. words fail me regarding these comments: you'll just have to see them for yourself and make up your own mind. still, i'm left wondering who's really more of a danger to black folks: the neocons or the negrocons?
