    Monday Aug 24 | WBEZ-FM Chicago

    Mick Jenkins' 2014 release The Water[s] helped establish him as one of the stronger voices in Chicago's vibrant, diverse hip-hop scene. While the locally popular drill and bop music often associated with that city's rap are visceral expressions of youthful energy, Jenkins' music is the decidedly cerebral and emotive other side of the same coin.

  6. Black Americans in LoveRead the original story

    Jun 17, 2015 | Living the Romantic Comedy

    Practically everybody in print has been finding a way to speak to the great historical occasion of our 44th President's inauguration, and I was particularly taken with Manohla Dargis and A.O. Scott's take in the NY Times: How the Movies Made the President . Subtitled "Evolving Cinematic Roles Have Prepared America to Have a Black Man in Charge," their piece insightfully analyzes just how that's been accomplished, shrewdly identifying the movie archetypes that have arguably paved Obama's way, among them the Black Everyman, the Black Father, even the Black Yoda .

    Apr 27, 2015 | VH1

    Note : Though Bruce Jenner has now identified as a woman, he has not yet elected to be identified under a new name or by female pronouns, so as a result, I've used male pronouns. Even if some of Diane Sawyer 's questions to Bruce Jenner seemed banal to those already familiar with the facts that gender identity and sexual orientation are not mutually exclusive or the notion that our rigid definitions of gender are damaging, the reality is the general public remains largely ignorant.

    Feb 17, 2015 | New York Daily News

    Any American who sees "Gentleman's Agreement" at the Mayfair Theatre will be shaken out of his complacency if, in his opinion, it is better to let a possible anti-Semitic feeling that might be stirring in this country alone, or work it out under cover. The idea behind the 20th Century-Fox film production of Laura Z. Hobson's best-selling novel is that any prejudice which might be expressed in a concrete manner by some portion of the citizenry against a minority group, must be stamped out by shouting it down from the house-tops, if need be.
