In this episode, we ask: “What do white and non-black artists that benefit from the historical contribution and influence of Black artists on popular music owe to Black people?” And we answer: “Nothing less than to pay forward what they have reaped from their success.”
This episode was recorded and edited before the events of George Floyd’s murder and the ensuing protest movements all across the nation. As Black women, we have a lot to say about it. All of it.
