Harlem Blues and the Barack Buzz
This week I had a chance to do an interview with Newsweek.com regarding the significance of Barack Obama’s campaign and Harlem. The short video entitled, “Martin, Malcolm, Barack?” features me and multiple Harlem artists. Click here to check it out.
Like all journalism, whether print or multimedia, I always find myself wondering how things become whittled down. We really discussed a great deal in the interview which was about a half an hour. We discussed current day Harlem, its history, Black politics, Black leadership, really the whole gamut. But even with the editing, I think the piece was successful. Check it out.
Update: For some reason this video seems to be very difficult to maintain a link to. I’ve changed the url a couple of times and as of 1m on June 26th this link is active. I hope the video doesn’t disappear from cyberspace! And shout out to UptownFlavor.com where I pulled the link from!
