Thanks to all those who tuned in this week to...


Thank you all for respecting the lack of broadcasting last week. Excited to be back and see how this platform can be used to assist the Black Lives Matter Movement.

So much of our pop culture comes from the work of BIPOC (many times without the proper credit). Pop music specifically is constantly appropriated by white people for various reasons, but continues the tradition of our society to steal cultural elements from black people for the gain of white capitalism in entertainment. The music industry is incredibly underrepresented and so many BIPOC voices are stifled and stolen from by white producers and executives, who refuse to acknowledge what they are taking. Why are we not promoting the artists, songwriters, musicians, and singers more, instead of bringing them on to make our white artists sound "cooler"?

This week's power hour consists of pop/rap/R&B music from black artists of the past decade. Music that has impacted me, made me want to sing and dance, and now more than ever, helped me to listen to what is being said. If you are interested in hearing more about how Black culture and American pop music are one in the same, check out this episode of the podcast, 1619, by journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones.
