This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the writing, visual and performing arts of African people in the Diaspora. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work filled with raw unfettered passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay! Remember to tune in on Wednesdays from 6 AM PST to 7 or 8 AM and on Fridays from 8 AM to 10 AM. We also host special broadcasts from time to time.
Today we are joined by author, Queen Kay, to talk about her memoir, The Reconstruction and Transformation of Queen Kay; this live interview is followed by a prerecorded interview with Tim Wise about his latest work, Dear White America (RESCHEDULED);
We close with a conversation with the cast of The Old Settler by John Henry Redwood, directed by Tico Wells, a member of the original cast in 1997. The play is currently on the main stage at the Black Repertory Group Theatre in Berkeley, CA.
Angel Lands, director as well, appears as Elizabeth, Paula Martin as Quiley, Clarence Ray Johnson as Husband Witherspoon, and Tavia Percia as Lou Bessie a.k.a Charmaine. Dr. Mona Vaughn Scott, Executive Director, joins us, Angel, Tavia and me, as a surprise. The play is extended through April 13. Runs are Friday-Saturday, 8 p.m. and 2:30 Saturday matinees.
