Welcome back to another edition of The Rebel Beat, a Firebrand Records podcast!
Our special guest on the program this month is a Jamaican dub poet who is considered by some to be the god-mother of rap, hip-hop, and spoken word. She is a writer, educator, and grassroots activist, and we’ll meet her in just a little bit – Lillian Allen.
We’re part of the Channel Zero Network of anarchist podcasts, and the website just went live this week! Check it out for some good listening at http://www.channelzeronetwork.com.
On our Turn It Up segment, we give a shout out to a dope trans hip-hop artist and Black Lives Matter organizer in Montreal, Lucas Charlie Rose.
