Before we are too far into 2013, I want to take a moment to share with you a few of my favorite ITYC Radio interviews from 2012. It was really hard to choose from such a selection of amazing guests, but I managed to narrow it down to six of my favorite interviews from the last year.
You can listen to all the interviews by clicking the links below or if you are mobile listener you can listen to all of the interviews on Stitcher for smartphones and tablets.
Identity, Choosing Sides, and the Public Consumption of Race and Art
I loved talking to artists Ty Hardaway and Nate Hill about art and how their work is affected by questions of race and identity.
The best thing about interviews for me is what I learn from my guests. This talk with Dr. Shakti Butler was a real eye-opener for me as we talked about her latest film "Cracking the Codes: The System of Racial Inequality."
Covering everything from Oppa Gangnam style to the influences of black music on Korean pop music, this interview with Dr. 'Ceefu' Crysyal S. Anderson was a lot of fun to do.
Frequent listeners know that I could not stop talking about Professor Robin Bernstein's book Racial Innocence: Performing American Childhood from Slavery to Civil Rights (America and the Long 19th Century). If you listen to his interview, you'll understand why.
Professor Renee Romano shared some insight on her fascinating work on interracial marriage and on the Civil Rights Movement.
Filmmaker Randy Vasquez discussed his documentary "A Thick Dark Fog" which revealed the horrible legacy of Indian boarding schools and the systematic removal of Indian children from their families and communities through the eyes of Walter Littlemoon (Lakota).
