I'm hosting a series for American Legacy XL where I'll be interviewing icons of African-American history and culture. This week, with Derecka Purnell, I'll be conducting an interview with Norman & Velma Hill, Civil Rights Activists who were part of the planning for 1963's March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.
As a section of First Corinthians Baptist Church's Black Spirituality and Black Consciousness class, I'll be offering a modified version of my "Where is God in Hip-Hop?" presentation. Questions I'll consider:
- Should we consider this music genre sacred?
- What hope does hip-hop offer Black Churches and the Black/African-American community?
As a part of NYC Lab School for Collaborative Studies' program "Celebrating the World's Majority" I'll be leading a workshop on the cultural perspective of hip-hop. It's entitled As We Proceed to Give You What You Need: A History of the Art of Hip-Hop.
I'm hosting a series for American Legacy XL where I'll be interviewing icons of African-American history and culture. This week, aboard American Legacy's Know Your History Mobile Museum Truck I'll be talking with legendary music producer and songwriter Bill Salter. He wrote classics like Bill Withers' "Just the Two of Us" and "Where is the Love" by Roberta Flack and Donny Hathaway.
