When Sun Ra Went to Egypt in 1971: See Film & Hear Recordings from the Legendary Afrofuturist’s First Visit to Cairo Sun Ra died in 1993 (or he returned to his home planet of Saturn, one or the other). Twenty-seven years later his Arkestra is still going strong. “No group in jazz history has embodied the communal spirit like the Arkestra,” writes Peter Margasak at The Quietus. “Their hardcore fans are the closest thing jazz has to Deadheads.” We could further compare Sun Ra and Jerry Garcia as bandleaders—their embrace of extended free form playing against a ...

Timely trailer for Fred Hampton biopic 'Judas and the Black Messiah'

According to Newsweek, O'Neal was placed in federal witness protection after his involvement with the FBI came to ligh...

Community organizations are returning to their 19th century roots

When I needed to donate a box of vegetables recently, I called a nonprofit in my Queens neighborhood in Queens, New York, that organizes low-wage immigrant workers. The organizer, Will Rodriguez, said, “You know, Rinku, we don’t usually do this stuff, but we just had to jump in because the need is so great. People are suffering so much.” By “this stuff,” he meant mutual aid, in which members of a community work together to meet each other’s urgent needs. Normally, the day laborers and domestic w...

Alter – “Good Day’s Work”

Exhaustion, the grind of survival in America, and the cynicism it engenders, check out the new single by N.Y.C. native Alter. The son features sampling of a 1969 meeting between the Black Panthers and the Young Patriots, a group of redneck transplants in Chicago who decided to work with the Panthers after realizing their common struggles for decent housing, an end to police brutality, and self-determination. Together with the Puerto Rican organization the Young Lords, they formed the first...

Despite Police Confrontation, the Queer Liberation March Was a Powerful and Peaceful Call for Justice

Thousands of protesters flooded the streets of lower Manhattan on Sunday for the Queer Liberation March for Black Lives and Against Police Brutality, a rallying cry against police violence that combined the spirit of Pride with the ongoing calls of the Black Lives Matter movement. Late afternoon reports on social media showed disturbing moments of confrontation after a largely peaceful march, with the police pushing through crowds of protesters and appearing to detain multiple people.New York Ci...

Ta-Nehisi Coates's "Black Panther and the Crew" is a powerfully relevant superhero story about Black lives, police brutality, and US history

I have been frequently awed by Ta-Nehisi Coates's thoughtful observations on politics and race in America. But I'll be honest: I was somewhat disappointed by his first run of Black Panther comics. It felt, to me, more like a Coates essay accompanied by some action sequences. The ideas were there, and the art by Brian Stelfreeze was spectacular, but it just didn't grip me as a dramatic narrative. (His Captain America, illustrated by Leinil Francis Yu and others, has left me similarly cold.) Fortu...

The revolutionary art of Black Panthers graphic designer Emory Douglas, a short documentary

214 Days

214 Days: Tree sitters have blockaded the Mountain Valley Pipeline for seven months. Here’s what motivates them to persist. It started with the two tree sits blocking the Mountain Valley Pipeline easement in Jefferson National Forest in West Virginia, in close proximity to the Appalachian Trail. These two tree-sits were soon followed by more acts of resistance along the pipeline route, including numerous aerial blockades and people locking down to equipment. In a video posted by one of t...

Black panther seen in Africa

For the first time in nearly 100 years, a black panther (also called black leopard) has been spotted and photographed on the African continent. Black leopards are more commonly found in Southeast Asia, and though there have been a few reported sightings of the species in Africa, only one was confirmed in Ethiopia in 1909. A research team from the Institute for Conservation Research of San Diego Zoo Global and the Loisaba Conservancy in Kenya spotted the cat in Laikipia County, just north of ...

A Troubled Sound Rings on in Danny Goldberg's 'In Search of the Lost Chord'

How plastic is the hippie? That's a question to dig in on. Some media will show you black and white photos adorned with flowers and smiles and peace signs while espousing the legendary, progressive steps taken by these individuals. Others will just tell you about The Altamont Speedway Free Festival, where drugs led to death and the party turned as sour as the beer on the Hell's Angels' breath that night. The truth lies somewhere in the air in between, under, and above all that, but Danny Goldbe...

Ex-Voter Fraud Commissioners Spar With Voting Rights Advocates On House Panel

Election law attorneys who often oppose each other in court had the opportunity Tuesday to spar from the same witness table.

On the other were voting rights advocates who have led legal challenges to to restrictive election laws. The occasion was a House Judiciary Committee hearing on Democrats’ package of voting-rights-oriented legislation. Hans von Spakovsky — an ex-...

John Berger was a Lifelong Cultural Agitator with a Valuable Point of View

None At first glance, titling the first intellectual biography of John Berger A Writer of Our Time appears to be a simple homage to Berger's 1958 novel, A Painter of Our Time. Joshua Sperling instead sets out the title as an argument, providing powerful evidence that Berger was indeed a writer of our time. Had Sperling set out to tell the story of 20th century art through Berger's work, the project would likely have been smothered in artifice. Yet by carefully laying out the path of Berger's a...
