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 forebearers. 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 open at 9 AM PT with an interview with Thomas Simpson, AfroSolo and artists featured in the 26th Annual showcase. We close with archived interviews with directors and subjests at the Virtual Legacy Film Festival on Aging May 24-31.
We end instead with Ben Vereen (6/12/2012). The file was too large for the program. 5/7 was the original broadcast date for Legacy Film Festival.
