If you are awarded a grammy, you are considered to be the best artist among your peers. The problem is, the Grammys is a white-dominated organization and while it has long "included" non-white people, specifically Black people in the music business, the industry continues to support, promote and reward music that is harmful to black people in general and black women and girls specifically.

The Context of White Supremacy welcomes Professor N.D.B. Connolly. Mr. Connolly is an assistant professor in the Johns Hopkins University Department of History. He explores the context of racism, capitalism, politics, and the built environment. His scholarship pays special attention to people’s overlapping understandings of property rights and civil rights in the United States and the wider Americas. We’ll investigate his debut publication, A World More Concrete: Real Estate and the Remaking of Jim Crow South Florida. He details how Florida’s “Magic City” was produced by an unwavering devotion to White Supremacy. He details how eminent domain was used to confiscate black property, terrorize black families. He also details how White use of space can be a masterful act of economic terrorism. As usual, Whites make black suffering a lucrative, enduring enterprise.
