Art in a 'Post-Black' Era

Monday, January 16, 2012

In his book Who’s Afraid of Post-Blackness? the writer and TV host Touré explores the ever-evolving role of race in America. The book is part autobiography, part cultural analysis – and draws on interviews with more than 100 thinkers and artists, including Chuck D, Santigold, Kara Walker and Henry Louis Gates Jr. Touré joins us to discuss what it means to be black in America today.

This is an encore edition of Soundcheck.

Guests:

Wish this topic was given a full hour. Could you please spell out or link the name of the artist you just mentioned who integrates 14th century music?
