Akala (@AkalaMusic) Deconstructs Race, Class, and Britain’s Modern Myths  – #UnfilteredWithJamesOBrien EP #32 [@JOE_co_uk]

Rapper, poet and scholar Akala joins James O’Brien for a scintillating interview, in which they discuss two issues that run to the heart of modern Britain: race and class.

In a breakneck hour of conversation, Akala picks apart many of the modern myths around gangs, street violence and black youth, looking at the ways these are perpetuated in the media and who benefits from perpetuating them, as well as looking back to the Windrush generation and the institutionalised injustices that led to the recent crisis. It’s an education.
