This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forbearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!
Today we will be speaking to two veterans, Mark G, activist, poet, father and member of All of Us or None and Gary Hollis, business man, father and mentor, about the serving time in the armed forces and also about the synergy between the Military Industrial Complex and the Prison Industrial Complex.
We close with an interview with artist, Francesca Blanchard about her first album: “DeuxVisions" http://www.francescablanchard.com/about/
Francesca Blanchard is performing in San Francisco on November 21st at Slim's, opening for Yuna. This is Francesca's first San Francisco appearance.
