https://soundcloud.com/grownfo... download (audio/mpeg, 51.95Mb)

Description: The Royale Podcast is a limited run podcast that chronicles the creation process of the play. Hosted by GFM's Music Editor Ivan Orr, we hope that this inside look into this production will inspire you to support Black Theater and Black Art. The Royale is not about boxing. It is about a fight. This play asks questions most white people never have to encounter in a lifetime because you are born into a society that answers it for you every minute of every day. For those of us in Black bodies, these are questions we live our lives bobbing, weaving and sparring with. What is your worth? What are you willing to sacrifice to prove your worth? When is the sacrifice too much? How do you make that decision and not go insane from the sadness and anger the inevitable consequences produce? How do you demonstrate your humanity when no one believes you are human? As Director, I invited some of the best minds I know, my cast members and the Artistic Director of Live Arts to help me talk about the issues and possibly answer some of the questions. Professor A. D. Carson, Professor Kwame Otu, my lovely cast and Artistic Director Bree Luck all were vital to the telling of this story and my vision. - Leslie Scott-Jones For more information about The Royale please visit http://livearts.org

6. GFM's Inside The Album Podcast: The Black Album
https://soundcloud.com/grownfo... download (audio/mpeg, 391.84Mb)

Description: GFM's Inside The Album Podcast: The Black Album GFM’s Loveman, The Ricker, and DJ Polished Solid are joined by Prince Scholars, Zaheer Ali, Miles Marshall Lewis & Harold Pride, to discuss one of the funkiest albums ever recorded by anyone, the album with no name which was eventually dubbed The Black album. The album was so funky that Camille didn’t give it a name and Prince ultimately decided to pull it from its intended original release. As a result, this masterpiece became one of the most bootlegged albums ever until its official 1994 release. This album is the gift that keeps on giving more than thirty years later. Our three-hour conversation is a testament to that and that’s after editing it down from four. NOTES: http://the-black-album.info Writings referenced: George, Nelson.
