The Return Of The Black Writers Symposium (Feat. Shanita Hubbard & Lincoln Anthony Blades)

Back by popular demand! We sit down with two more beautifully Black ass writers for "The Return of The Black Writers Symposium". However, this time we're joined by Shanita Hubbard ("The Root", "Ebony", "Griots Republic", "Abernathy Magazine", etc.) and newly christened Teen Vogue columnist Lincoln Anthony Blades to discuss navigating between Black-owned and mainstream media outlets, how protecting our publications and luminaries from outside criticism is counterproductive, and how to protect both yourself and your bank account from exploitive business practices. Additionally, Alex is perfectly fine with leftovers, Jay extols the virtues of the Black Speculative Arts Movement, and Beyonce's baby daddy is a struggle rapper.

A Black Writers Symposium (Feat. Kiese Laymon & Hari Ziyad of RaceBaitR)

In one of our most candid episodes to date, we're joined by the dynamic duo of educator, "Long Division" author, and Southern-fried scribe Kiese Laymon and RaceBaitR's H.N.I.C. Hari Ziyad for our first ever "Black Writers Symposium". We discuss the necessity of the creative spaces they occupy, the delicate balance of selling their artistry while not selling their souls, and the roles and responsibilities of writers within the pursuit of true Black liberation. Additionally, Alex has a thing for Crunch Berries, Jay shops at Gordon Gartrelle, and Amtrak stations ain’t nothing nice.
