I was listening to an "On Point" interview with Renee Graham and Jamilah King, Boston Globe and Mic News correspondents respectively, about the new protest moment we are in. The conversation was brought about because of the pushback to Beyonce's SuperBowl "Formation" performance and Lamar Kendrick singing in chains at the Grammy's. I found the podcast and it's worth a listen for sure.
I also want to draw your attention to the comments that have flooded the site since the program aired on Friday last. There's some great music of the past mentioned and included. And going back to the days when I was in my twenties, there's a great YouTube of Les McCann and Eddie Harris playing "Compared To What."
I've remembered that message over all these years. And, should you really be interested in these recent mainstream connections to BLM, here's an analysis and discussion of Beyonce's SB performance from the NYT.
