S01E07 Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Strange Fruit, Juneteenth Blackout Takeover by the Vi-Curious Podcast | Black Music History, BLM, Civil Rights Pepe and Ybra

    • Music Interviews

The following episode will be the first official blackout takeover of the music podcast, Pepe & Ybra. Paul and Eleshia are co-hosts from the Vi-Curious Podcast, a podcast by Black creators about society, culture, anime and everything in between. For those just tuning in for the first time, Pepe and Ybra is a podcast about music and creativity, but for this episode, Black creators such as Paul and Lesha are taking it over in honor of Juneteenth. They'll be discussing two powerful women singers Billie Holiday & Nina Simone.



Corrections:

1. Billie Holiday was born 1915 not 1929

2. 17:45 time Stamp: Rand Paul said he is seeking to amend the legislation to create a new serious bodily injury standard that would ensure that crimes resulting in a substantial risk of death and extreme physical pain can be prosecuted as lynching.

3. 43:00 'Hound Dog' was created by Big Mama Thornton

4. 44:16 Church bombing in Birmingham, Alabama
