A Crisis In Black Culture
In this special, African American History Month discussion, we will look at some of the problems facing the continuity and strength of Black culture, and their residual effects on the Black community. A central issue to be explored is the how the aesthetic, social and economic forces of commercial popular culture has caused a tailspin in Black culture in America and elsewhere.

Philly Jazz Quotes

On my first record with him, I used no notes, just sound... I never played as powerfully as I did with Sunny Murray... he plays pulse, not beats.
