Practically Speaking 12: Black and Gay in America. by vocalo published on 2013/05/20 19:58:41 +0000 In this installment of Practically Speaking, we talk to Cultural Anthropologist Clinton Nichols about the larger social implications of celebrities (like Frank Ocean) who have decided to come out. He also talks about what it means to be Black and Gay in America. We also talk about the legacy of Bayard Rustin, an African-American Civil Rights-Era activist who organized the March on Washington. But, he was pushed out of the spotlight because he was also Gay. Plus, we revisit an interview with Pastor Phil of the Lawndale Christian Church. Practically Speaking airs fresh episodes Saturdays at 1pm CST on vocalo.org, and over the air at 89.5fm and 90.7fm in Chicago. Visit vocalo.org and press play.
