Imani Perry (00:05):
I love to read. I love ideas. I love art. I love the sort of quest for meaning and truth and all that stuff. And I also deeply love beauty and love. And for me, those things all have to go together.
Maori Karmael Holmes (Host) (00:23):
Welcome to season two of many lumens with me. Maor Carmel Holmes produced by black star projects. This is a podcast where we chat with some of the world’s most groundbreaking artists, change makers and cultural workers finding meaning in the intersections of art, social change and popular culture.
Jeff Chang (00:41):
I just feel like everything that I’ve gotten into I’ve I’ve learned through hip hop, you know, first of all, just a sort of expansive vision of black freedom that is encapsulated in the music.
Sky Hopinka (00:56):
I’m not making any concessions for the work or who I’m making it for. If this white organization wants to tokenize me, then that’s their problem. Not mine.
Maori Karmael Holmes (Host) (01:05):
We have 12 new episodes coming your way. This season, featuring conversations with some of my favorite radical thinkers, including filmmakers, painters, and writers.
Yaba Blay (01:14):
I always want to make sure that while we are experiencing the moment that we also recognize that these are moments, that our ancestors also experience that there’s not so much disconnect between us and them.
