"Gil Scott Heron's long standing political commitment and protean influence on rap are finally given their due in this outstanding documentary. Throughout, the music of the Midnight Band is supple, seductive fusion of soul, funk, jazz, pop, and Afro-ethnic roots. Scott-Heron himself fairly glows with passion and sincerity... an unusually warm, witty and likable human being."

This compelling book offers important new insights into the connections among radio, race relations, and the civil rights and black power movements in the South from the 1920s to the mid-1970s.

There is No Such Thing as a Natural Disaster is the first critical scholarly book on the catastrophic impact of Hurricane Katrina on New Orleans. The disaster will go down in record as one of the worst in American history, not least because of the government's generally inept and cavalier response. But it's also a huge story for other obvious reasons.
