program date: 
Mon, 03/25/2013

Clayton Morgareidge talks with radical musicologist Brad Duncan about Black Power as the radicalizing of what had been the more integrationist civil rights movement, and about the roots of soul music in gospel and R&B. They discuss the role of music in preserving cultural memory of the Black Power movement, the time it took for the mainstream corporate music industry to accept musicians performing politically radical music, and the courage and importance of Nina Simone.
