Crews | Day 5 | P-Funk and AfroFuturism

Show Notes

Listen, the P is for parliament and Funk for Funkadelic. Two bands united. 
Under a groove.
Getting down
(for what?)
…just fooooor the funk of it.
We ready.
Today’s conversation will explore the father of Black futurism as he convened a crew of bands (with a dash of Bootsy Collins), to inspire a new generation’s imagination of what was possible for children of the motherland – rejecting definitions of tragic fleets of ships of stolen progeny and setting off on a new zeitgeist of earthy soul and galactic freedom.
The Mothership is waiting. Snoop, Tupac, Erykah Badu, definitely Prince, and all of Omega Psi Phi have been dazzled by the star-shaped glimmer of this crew.
They are already onboard.
Step inside.
Join us today for a walk and talk.
