Call in to speak with the host

Rod will be performing at the Carter Barron Amphitheater in Washington DC August 28 (free) 7:30 pm at the 5th Annual DC Poetry in the Park with Special Guest Gil Scott Herron Rodrick Freeman aka Rod-zilla the Blackademic has been a staple in the California spoken word scene for the last 5 years. His dynamic performances have graced stages from LA to Cuba, heralded as the hip hop griot, Rod-zilla stuns crowds with his creative natural realism, an abundance of alliteration, and a delivery thats as unforgettable as Nat Cole. Representing the New Black Arts movements this Blackademic has made it his duty to kill popular Black male stereotype with his scholarly work, showing that the myth of the Black intellectual is not a farce at all. Equipped with knowledge of self, and African conviction Mr. Freeman has set out to be inthe vanguard of progressive thinking, positive action, and edutainment to the highest degree. His prolific body of work, details the need for economic freedom and development in our communities, the need for Black accountability but not sparing venomous critiques on the powers that be.
It's good to talk.
