Saxophone a l'apres midi: In Praise of Black Performance and excerpts from the Albert Ayler Story

1:00pm - 1:57pm

Excerpts from Hanif Abdurraqib's book in praise of Black Performance "A Little Devil in America". As Black History month comes to a "close" myself and the Black community wishes everyone a happy Melanin March! No but, for real, this episode talks about Black History month and the negative perception of Black performance from the White perspective as opposed to the Black excellence that deserves to be talked about, promoted, and seen. In a positive light!! In a respected sphere of influence!! As heroes and intellectuals in the story rather than extras, villains, or comedic relief!!
