Description

We'll be talking with Lillian Cicerchia about the limitations of post Marxism, and then we're going to be discussing the Black Music and the culture industry with Greg Tate


 
About Lillian Cicerchia:
Lillian is a post-doc at the Institute of Philosophy at the Free University of Berlin. Her areas of specialization are political philosophy, feminist philosophy, and critical theory. Her research is about capitalism, structural injustice, and the intersection of the two, especially the ways in which capitalism influences experiences of social group oppression. Her work also asks how contexts of structural injustice frame the way that we think about our normative criteria for justice in terms of democratic rights and participation.

About Greg Tate:
Tate was born and raised in Dayton, Ohio. When he was 13 years old, his family moved to Washington, D.C.[1][2] He credits Amiri Baraka's Black Music and Rolling Stone, which he first read when he was 14, with stimulating his interest in collecting and writing about music.[3] As a teenager, Tate taught himself how to play guitar. He attended Howard University, where he studied journalism and film.


 
In 1982, Tate moved to New York City, where he developed friendships with other musicians, including James "Blood" Ulmer and Vernon Reid. In 1985 he co-founded the Black Rock Coalition with some of the African-American musicians he knew who shared a common interest in playing rock music.


 
Tate became a staff writer for The Village Voice in 1987, a position he held until 2005. His 1986 essay "Cult-Nats Meet Freaky Deke" for the Voice Literary Supplement is widely regarded as a milestone in black cultural criticism; in the essay, he juxtaposes the "somewhat stultified stereotype of the black intellectual as one who operates from a narrow-minded, essentialized notion of black culture" (cultural nationalists, or Cult-Nats) with the freaky "many vibrant colors and dynamics of African American life and art", trying to find a middle ground in order to break down "that bastion of white supremacist thinking, the Western art [and literary world" His work has also been published in The New York Times, The Washington Post, Artforum, Down Beat, Essence, JazzTimes, Rolling Stone, and VIBE. The Source described Tate as one of "the Godfathers of hip-hop journalism".


 
In 1999, Tate established Burnt Sugar, an improvisational ensemble that varies in size between 13 and 35 musicians. Tate described the band in 2004 as "a band I wanted to hear but could not find".


 
Tate has been a visiting professor of Africana studies at Brown University and the Louis Armstrong Visiting Professor at Columbia University's Center for Jazz Studies. In 2010, he was awarded a United States Artists fellowship.
