On this minisode we discuss host James Peterson's two new books: "Hip Hop Headphones: A Scholar's Critical Playlist" and "Prison Industrial Complex For Beginners," illustrated by John Jennings and Stacey Robinson of the Black Kirby collaborative.
Did you spend the summer taking in the big afros, Kangol caps, and polyester suits on "The Get Down"? Here at The Remix we were working hard on our new season of shows — and also binge watching "The Get Down."
Stay tuned for Remix episodes featuring international BLM activist Daunasia Yancey, politicians on the pitfalls of talking about race, and comic book artits John Jennings and Stacey Robinson. We'll also do a deep dive into the legend of Tupac Shakur and take listeners on a tour of the new National Museum of African American History and Culture.
