MF GALAXY

MF GALAXY is a weekly podcast powered by four mighty engines: * Writers on writing: the craft and the business * Pop culture including TV, movies, graphic novels, and more * Progressive politics, activism, and social enterprise * Africentric change-makers, histories, cultures, art, and more! Mixing brand-new interviews with classic conversations (from my archive of 23 years in broadcasting) with famous and dynamic figures in the arts, Hollywood, and politics, MF GALAXY will take you to places you've never been before, and deliver fresh insights on the places you've been.

A couple of important links:

David Simon refers to conflict with Charles Roc Dutton while making the miniseries The Corner. For further reading, check this article.

I asked A. Peter Bailey about African youth in the US (and Canada) believing that education is “White,” and learned later for the outstanding sociologist Algernon Austin and his book Getting It Wrong that such claims are mostly a myth. Listen to my interview with Algernon Austin here.
