Well, disappointment and setbacks always come with this TV biz, don’t they? We had our contacts, but they were unable to come through for us at the 9:30 Club in Washington, DC. So, we can’t bring you good photos and video of the Distant Relatives tour. We considered this really important for our webisode on the development of Africa’s music scene, and how Africa’s cultures are featuring on the world stage. Oh well… However, while milling around outside the venue feeling rather crestfallen, we ran into hip hop intellectual and Georgetown University professor Michael Eric Dyson! We walked right up to him and thrust our camera in his face, so he proceeded to break it down for us about “Distant Relatives,” the connection between Trenton and Trenchtown and Freetown, etc., etc…
Here’s a brief preview clip of Michael Eric Dyson chatting with AFROfusion’s Khadia Conteh:
More of what he said coming soon on AFROfusion TV… Stay tuned!
