ARMAUD ARBERY. BREONNA TAYLOR. GEORGE FLOYD... With America's cities in flames by the hands of the inflamed, charged over yet another and another and another Black death, here's my response to the week that was... to the weak, this is. A friend posted on her Facebook page about her moment of clarity after watching events unfold. She wondered why it took her entire 45 yrs to see and apologized to Black people. I woke up Sunday morning, read her post and reached out to her. My note  summarized the week, where I'm at.

Ubuntu Peoples Podcast, Ep #76--Jay Attys: Music Makes Me Come ALIVE!

Jay Attys, the son of immigrant parents from Haiti, grew up in East Orange, NJ. His father wanted him to be a doctor. After earning scholarships to the prestigious Westminster boarding school in CT and Duke University, Jay was working to fulfill his father's dream. In his junior year at Duke, Jay decided to forgo medicine and earn a degree in music. His family summarily disowned him, calling him crazy. Jay felt isolated, depressed, lacked hope but on a trip to Vienna, Austria, he found solace and inspiration in #TheHeiligenstadtTestament, a letter and directive Beethoven wrote to his brothers in October, 1802. Since then, Jay's days have been testimony to his art, his voice and a desire to live what music makes him feel: ALIVE!

We find ourselves in the worst epidemic in United States history. Sudden, accidental death from heroin has quadrupled since 1999. Prescriptions for pain medication (often known as narcotics) have quadrupled since 1999. This is not a coincidence.

Ubuntu Peoples Podcast, Ep #73-Dr. Mark Anthony Neal: The Epistemology of M.A.N.s Interiority Complex 

Dr. Mark Anthony Neal is Chair of the Department of African & African American Studies and the founding director of the Center for Arts, Digital Culture and Entrepreneurship (CADCE) at Duke University where he offers courses on Black Masculinity, Popular Culture, and Digital Humanities. He and I have been in the same rooms at events in Durham the past two years but never had a conversation until this interview. I wanted to find out how Dr. Neal became the M.A.N. he is, what forces shaped his intellect and scholarship --as a youth. I found out that it began on his stoop in the Bronx listening to his mother and the residents on the block talk about everything. It was nurtured by his parents who fed his intellect, and cultivated as an only child learning to be comfortable with himself and his ideas. I found out he and I attended the same high school--Brooklyn Tech--found power and purpose when given time and space to develop our particular Black perspectives, that we hold some of the same fears and hopes for the promise of Blackness to come.

The Ubuntu Peoples Podcast, Ep #66--Alan Sanchez: The Personality and The Soccer Coach

Alan Sanchez played 4 years of soccer at North Carolina State University. I coached him his freshman and sophomore years there. He was named to the ACC All-Freshmen team and was an All-ACC first-team and All-ACC Tournament selection as a senior in 2009. Alan played professionally in the US and Chile. Today, he is a coach shaping young lives, and wants to show others how to teach the beautiful game that has brought him so much. We talk about developing players in the US vs elsewhere, what a 10 year old from Real Madrid taught him, the "culture" of soccer shaping a player, creating the magical #10, what the game asks of its best players and how he preps them to respond.

Ubuntu Peoples Podcast, Ep #65--Uncle Kanye vs Childish Gambino: Music, Meaning and Madness on the Come Up

Childish Gambino dropped the apocryphal *This Is America* 4 days ago and stole the internet from Kanye West who broke the internet 5 days earlier at TMZ studios. 2 brothas, 2 artists, 2 statements, 2 much different rxns in and outside the Black community. I examine, compare and contrast both while talking with my buddy Joel Bristol (Ep# 53-56) about the role of the artist, their responsibilities to creation, intention, supremacy and to themselves.

Ubuntu Peoples Podcast, Ep #63--Dr. Bertram Ashe: Black Dread Locked In The Post Soul Aesthetic (Part 1 of 2) 

Dr Bertram Ashe teaches and writes about contemporary American culture, primarily post-Civil Rights Movement African American literature and culture (often referred to as “post-blackness” or the “post-soul aesthetic”), as well as the black vernacular triumvirate of black hair, basketball, and jazz. He authored the book *Twisted: My Dreadlock Chronicles*. In part 1, Dr. Ashe and I discuss the hairstyle, the cultural, stylistic & personal reasons behind it's rise, Black male identity formation and perceptions of and around the hair, the "white gaze" on and off campus. We discuss his area of study--the Post Soul Aesthetic--give a definition and offer why it's worth exploring, no matter your skin color, and what the soul says about where America is headed. We also talk basketball and the wonderful freakiness of the current NBA, why Julius Malema is South Africa's Black Donald Trump and perhaps a post black icon.
