This Island Earth
Sunday June 21st, 2020 with Neil Bakshi
Music of Black Joy, some dub, and a dip into a few Brazillian classics. Neil hosts

I recently read an essay by Linda Diaz, a New York based artist where she wrote, "Community is invaluable. Black joy is radical,"

With the recent deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery erupting into protests across the U.S.A., and the world against racism and police brutality, the joy of being Black has felt stolen from her.

So I’m starting the show with a set that celebrates joy, because as Diaz writes, we can’t let them hijack happiness. And sometimes expressing and living with joy is a radical act.

Good theme, I looked for the article online and I can't find it, do you have a link to it? The theme makes a good contrast and counterpart to my show a few weeks ago on Black Rage and Grief.
