CSP Presents The Black Swan Collective: Episode #71

*Apologies for effing up lineup information in first two segments big time*
Now that everyone including me has got our end-of-the-year jollies out of way, let’s get back into it. CupcakKe gets us off to a good start with the release of her new album Ephorize. In addition, we got tracks by Lady Leshurr, Lodyss, and Fousheé. There’s no throwback segment this show, but we do have some good stuff possibly overlooked over the last month. Let’s get 2018 underway.

Inda’s Corner: A Requiem for Gayl’s Healing

Before I begin this episode, I must warn that there are possible spoilers throughout the essay. And also a content warning for some discussion of assault and possible domestic violence.

I rediscovered something from the favorite author – and also realized Kindred was no longer my favorite book. The Healing was, even more so than Corregidora. As I said, I still feel the same way about both these books, about the protagonists Ursa and Dana whose worlds were brought to life so beautifully in these works. But with The Healing, I began to figure out what it was I loved about Jones and why I felt drawn to her, why she felt like the writing foremother I needed to continue on my own journey. And so now, 20 years after the release of The Healing, I want to pay tribute to Jones and this work of hers that has become a guide for something I want in life as well as my goals as a writer.

We have one more regular show before the end of the year and issa goodt one! We got tracks by Eckoes, Latasha Alcindor, and Above Top Secret. Our throwback segment is fun and celebrates collaboration of sorts. Let’s get one more in before we say goodbye to 2017.

CSP Presents The Black Swan Collective: Episode #69

That post holiday, weekend lag has kicked in and we’re all recovering before getting back to the grind. We got tracks by Muhsinah, Abra, and Mabel. Our throwback segment is a bit unusual to say the least but says a lot about my tastes. Look for the self love anthems peppered throughout the show this week.

CSP Presents The Black Swan Collective: Episode #68

Looks like the ladies saved all the best hip hop for the end of the year because they really did it again. We got tracks by Ala.ni, Taliwhoah, and Isabelle Brown. There is no throwback segment this week but lots of artists you’ve already heard featured here. Find some old faves and get some new ones this week.
