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.
BTR News host Scotty Reid spoke with activist, author and poet Lupe Family who joined us from NYC to discuss the off-broadway play “Black Panther Women” which focuses on the women of the Black Panther Party, a revolutionary socialist organization that was destroyed by the FBI COINTELPRO using assassinations and terrorism directed at members. The play also highlights the Black Panther Party’s 10-Point Program.
The play runs in the NYC area through Sunday, March 4, 2018, and ticket information can be found on Eventbrite.
