Weekly in-depth interviews with forward-thinking people in the worlds of arts, entrepreneurship and politics with Laura Flanders.
Music, and the arts, has always been a way to express our full humanity and it’s always been our safety valve.
— Dr. Guthrie Ramsey
The subversive, healing, and celebratory powers of music and media are at the heart of this week’s conversation, featuring Saida Pagán, a contributor to Palabra, a journalism site run by the National Association of Hispanic Journalists, and Dr. Guthrie Ramsey, a music historian, jazz musician and composer recently interviewed on WURD radio in Philadelphia.
Pagán shares her take on the new hit movie In the Heights and the progress Latinx media is making in Hollywood; Guthrie reflects on Black joy as expressed through Black music.
“Meet the BIPOC Press” is a monthly feature of the Laura Flanders Show.
This celebration for Black Music Month is hosted by Sara Lomax-Reese and Mitra Kalita, founder/directors of URL Media, a network of Black and Brown community news outlets that share content and revenue.
The panel also addresses concerns about colorism in Latinx movie casting — and more!
