Summary:
Every weekday, the wildly popular Tom Joyner Morning show reaches more than eight million radio listeners. Author Micaela di Leonardo dives deep into the show's quarter-century run in the contexts of American/African American media histories. From its Clinton-era rise, its responses to key events - 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, President Obama, police killings of unarmed black Americans and the rise of Black Lives Matter, #MeToo, and Donald Trump's ascendancy - have broadcast the varied, defiant, often musical, and darkly comic voices of its anchors, guests, and audience. Thus we tune in to an alternative understanding of the shifting black public sphere in the digital age. Like the show itself, Black Radio/Black Resistance is politically progressive, music-drenched, and blisteringly funny.
