Wanda's Picks Radio April 6, 2016

This is a black arts and culture site. We will be exploring the African Diaspora via the writing, performance, both musical and theatrical (film and stage), as well as the visual arts of Africans in the Diaspora and those influenced by these aesthetic forms of expression. I am interested in the political and social ramifications of art on society, specifically movements supported by these artists and their forebearers. It is my claim that the artists are the true revolutionaries, their work honest and filled with raw unedited passion. They are our true heroes. Ashay!

Today is the anniversary of Lil' Bobby Hutton's killing at the hands of the Oakland Police (COINTELPRO operatives). He was the first casualty (at 17). We want to say: Ashay! Long Live the Spirit of this brave warrior for justice!
