The writer Darius James explores the terrain where art meets spirit, at the Crossroads where the full range of energies are present. In 1992, Darius published the novel, Negrophobia -- a caustic, hallucinatory, knife blade of a book that was probably about a quarter century ahead of its time. Punk novelist Kathy Acker called him a genius. The novel is being re-released in a new edition by the New York Review of Books, and has been getting high profile recognition as a classic of American satire. In more recent years, Darius had his own awakening experience, which he discusses with Ken. His insights about the connection between creativity and spirituality are so smart and provocative, they’ll get you thinking. Toward the end of the episode, he treats us to a powerful reading of new writing -- you won't want to miss it.You can follow Darius James on Facebook on his page, Dr Snakeskin.

In conversation with Gene Seymour, contributor to The Nation and former film critic and jazz columnist for Newsday. He has written for Bookforum, CNN.com, and The Washington Post. Author and spoken-word artist Darius James's 1992 masterpiece, the William S. Burroughs meets Thomas Pynchon meets Ishmael Reed fever-dream Negrophobia, is a raunchy, raucous, headlong dive into the many faces of American racism. With other works including That's Blaxploitation: Roots of the Baadassssss 'Tude, Voodoo Stew, and Froggy Chocolate's Christmas Eve, James is the cowriter and narrator of the of 2013 film The United States of Hoodoo. With a new introduction by film scholar Amy Abugo Ongiri and a new preface by the author, the multi-genre Negrophobia is dire, darkly comic, and more relevant than ever. (recorded 3/12/2019)
Darius James in conversation with Bernard Meisler. Darius James (aka Dr. Snakeskin) is the author of That’s Blaxploitation, a history of Black exploitation cinema, and the renowned cult classic Negrophobia, a raunchy and hilarious afrosurrealist satire, (“By far the best novel to emerge from New York’s Lower East Side literary scene.”—Kirkus) which will be re-released on February 19, 2019 by New York Review Books Classics. We talked about his childhood in New Haven, his move to Los Angeles where he heckled Richard Pryor (and got heckled right back), and his writing process and how it relates to magick. After the conversation Darius reads an excerpt from Negrophobia.
