Timely and provocative, this globe-trotting book takes you down an almost forgotten road of Black freedom: the one that connects the struggles of the burning ghettos of America to the rage against imperial power in Muslim lands. Shining light on the artists and activists who helped pave that road, Black Star, Crescent Moon vividly shows that Black freedom struggles, whether through art or politics, are always global in scope. Written with an urgency that our times demand, my man Sohail does what we in hip-hop have been doing for decades: uncovering histories, drawing connections, and trying to make people move. Rebel reading for right now!

—Yasiin Bey (formerly known as Mos Def)

Peace, we had a crazy packed show that you definitely need to get caught up on. Chris, Rec, and Unique were joined by local activist Roberto Garcia-Ceballos, writer and activist Kenyon Farrow, and hip-hop scholar Sohail Daulatzai in conversations about local organizing (Disowning Columbus, Celebrating People’s Resistance), People of Color and the “Occupy” movement, and the staying power of Nas’ ILLMATIC album, among other issues and histories. Enjoy and spread the word!
