On this episode we build with Troy Nkrumah, currently President and CEO of the Anchorage, Alaska chapter of the Urban League. We discuss the birth and demise of the National Hip-Hop Political Convention (2003-2008), the centennial conference of the Urban League meeting in Boston, and his work with urban communities in Anchorage. In Part 2 we speak with Malcolm Chu, a community organizer with the No One Leaves campaign, an anti-foreclosure initiative based in Springfield, Massachusetts. We get commentaries from Mumia Abu Jamal on Japan’s nuclear program, and Dr. Jared Ball on the recently released documentary on A Tribe Called Quest. Enjoy, comment, and subscribe to the site for instant updates. Let’s build!
