egypt protests

HEAR PART TWO OF THE PODCAST BELOW:

In part two of Bakari Kitwana’s interview with Amari Jackson and Anthony Browder about the current crisis in Egypt, cultural historian Anthony Browder draws parallels between the uprising in Egypt and the long forgotten state of the Nubian population. “It’s not surprising that you don’t hear anything about the Nubians. They are the Negroes of Egypt.”

Browder also talks in detail about other aspects of current changes in Egypt left out of the American media narrative, such as the obvious parallels to narrowing options for America’s own middle class. Browder and Jackson also take us behind the scene to a Luxor excavation of a Kushite priest that Browder is currently involved in. Drawing on his observations of this excavation while writing the book, Amari Jackson reminds us of the power of fiction to both history and current events: “The Savion Sequence helps us make important connections between Ancient Kemet and the current day.”

Amari Jackson is a journalist and the author of The Savion Sequence. Anthony Browder is a cultural historian and author of Egypt on the Potomac.

Bakari Kitwana is CEO of Rap Sessions, Editor at Large of Newsone.com and author of the forthcoming Hip-Hop Activism in the Obama Era. (Third World Press, 2011)
