S2 E12: “Interrogate & Celebrate”

April 28, 2022

Shadow // Yaddo hosted by Elaina Richardson—broadcasting stories of hope, resistance, humor and curiosity in our new podcast!

Danyel Smith on her new page-turner, Shine Bright: A Very Personal History of Black Women in Pop. With a self-described “lust for loud,” Danyel has spent decades as a reporter and editor on the music beat at major publications. This is the book she was born to write, braiding her own stories of ambition, doubt and heartbreak with those of the Black female artists she heralded. Contributing artists: Joseph Keckler, Whitney Houston, The Dixie Cups, Mary J. Blige, Diana Ross & The Supremes, Willie Mae “Big Mama” Thornton.

Tune in as we shine a light on the transformative vision of artists through conversations about art, literature, activism, ecology, inspiration and daily life.
