Jasiri X on “Left of Black” with Mark Anthony Neal
I was recently honored to appear on Mark Anthony Neal’s weekly webcast “Left of Black”. Mark Anthony Neal is a Professor of Black Popular Culture in the Department of African and African American Studies at Duke University, author of five books, frequent commentator for National Public Radio and a regular columnist for theLoop21.com.
The topic we discussed was ‘Conscious’ Hip-Hop in the age of Social Media and how I use the internet and Hip-Hop to address current issues. We also get into my offline, on the ground activism, and how I started working with Paradise the Arkitech of X-Clan. Prior to our conversation he does a excellent interview with Professor Ebony Utley about rap, religion and whether or not Jay Z worships the devil.
