Fred Moten, Brandon López, Gerald Cleaver: Moten/López/Cleaver

Chuck D of Public Enemy fame once said, "rap music is the CNN of the ghetto." His words, coupled with samples and the scratching of turntables, were revelatory in their day, very much like a five-minute news update. Poet and cultural critic Fred Moten's words are more like a deep dive graduate colloquy. He presents his poetry together with the accomplished improvising musicians, bassist Brandon Lopez and drummer Gerald Cleaver.
