DJ Lynnée Denise Will Co-Produce Black Music Series at CSULA
DJ Lynnée Denise and the California State University Los Angeles Cross Cultural Center are teaming up for a second time to co-produce "The Soul Music of Justice," a series of conversations featuring artists and scholars who will discuss under-explored topics in black music on campus. This iteration of the series, which premiered in the Spring of 2016, will feature discussions that include a conversation between underground funk legend Joi and filmmaker James Spooner, founder of the AfroPunk movement, and a discussion titled "A Change is Gonna Come: Frank Ocean and the Queering of Black popular Culture" with Asadullah Muhammad and Che J. Long. Students will be exposed to new ways of engaging popular culture and encouraged to understand and critically examine music, film and the arts as legible forms of text that communicate social meaning. All events will take place on the campus of California State University and are free to the public. Review flyers for additional details.
