Inda’s Corner 10: Possessing the Secret of (Black) Joy

*Please forgive inconsistencies in audio quality. I’ll get a new headset as soon as possible.
When I think about joy, I often conflate it with happiness or contentment, seeing them as the same thing without any clear distinctions in what they are or how they function. While I think it can be said that happiness is fleeting or intermittent and contentment is more of a constant, it’s difficult to place joy within or outside this spectrum. I think it might be fair to say that joy is synonymous with bliss or elation, at least interchangeable with each other at a basic definition. But maybe the distinction comes at the cause.

The Black Hippies: In Celebration of Jimi

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.
