Call in to speak with the host
“We thought we knew so much about jazz. [Brown] said, ‘Why don’t you come on by my house, I’ll show you some things.’ We went by there, and he had the whole wall full of records, by chronology and genre, and he said to me, ‘That’s your history.’ So it took me a decade to find that those records told a story: Every voice, every title is telling you the story of Afro-American history. I really latched on to that idea. And I went back and started listening to the blues.” Amiri Baraka
We talk with L A Bill Graham from Rutgers University on the life and works of Newark's own and author of :Blues People Professor Amiri Baraka.
