WHY SOME LIKE THE NEW JIM CROW SO MUCH:
Michelle Alexander is unlike “Some Radical Group[s]” who must be “Crazy” & “Absurd”
by Greg Thomas
Dr. Stephen Ferguson and Xan West joined us this week to drop important criticism of I Mix What I Like! A Mixtape Manifesto. Far more importantly the discussion went beyond a mere book to broader issues of radical theory and practice in the liberation struggles of race, class, gender and sexual orientation. For more on West and to read her full critique of the book check THIS out, and for a longer classroom discussion with Ferguson on the book and related issues check THIS out. And just keep going to hear today’s edition of The Super Funky Soul Power Hour which included words from Mumia Abu-Jamal regarding mass incarceration and political movements along with Trebel Army’s DiscObama and a few other audio treats.
