Professor of African & African-American Studies at Duke University and blog owner of New Black Man, Mark Anthony Neal began producing the weekly webcast Left of Black last year. Neal calls the series, “a contrarian view of blackness,” and it is due to his wide range of guests on the show who discuss a variety of topics, including lynching in Jim Crow south, Black students and tracking in schools, connections between hip-hop and the economy, connections between hip-hop and religion, racism and journalism, homosexuality and the black community, and the Occupy movement. The second season began on January 9th, so I encourage you to tune in.
One thought on “Moving on the Wires: Mark Anthony Neal’s Left of Black”
If you like Mark Anthony Neal, I think you might like my blog, Rhymes and Reasons. It is a series of interviews with hip-hop heads who discuss their lives in the context of a few songs that matter to them. The interviews tend to focus on questions of justice like racism, sexism, sexual violence, white privilege, etc. I hope you enjoy it.
