Deep in the heart of public school education wars rage on, and few warriors come to fight for the people. Yet, there is one small band of freedom fighters bring sanity to the village. Anyone who threatens the education of our 8 million black children is likely to catch these eight black hands. [Twitter: @8Blackhands1]

    Episode 206: Who Stole the Soul of Hip-Hop?

    An editorial in Hip Hop DX by Omar Burgess makes a provocative point: Hip Hop is not "Black" music. Once the music of underground youth in urban ghettos, it has become a commodity for cultural tourists. The 8BH crew discuss this.

Why the red "E"

Does "E" stand for explicit? When I saw all of the red E's listed next to your episodes, I nearly decided not to give it a try. The only reason I clicked on was to hear about Abbott Elementary. Now after listening to one episode, I already love it and subscribed. The conversation is relevant, has a diversity of thoughts, humurous, and intellectual. And I don't hear explicit language. By the way, I use a few curse words myself, but don't like gratuitous cursing while listening to media.

I'm just saying that the label of "E" might turn off some listeners before they give you a try.
