'Trumpeter Etienne Charles leads a big band and writes about big ideas. He’s made a name for himself by combining Afro-Caribbean musical traditions with American jazz. His new San Jose Suite is an ambitious 10-part work inspired by San Jose, California; San Jose, Costa Rica; and Etienne’s hometown of St. Joseph on the island of Trinidad—which was also called San Jose during the years of Spanish colonization. The "San Jose Suite" deals with conquest, resistance, and community, and came out of Etienne’s own work with indigenous musicians in each of the three places.'-- SoundCheck

'Three of Amazon’s top 10 bestselling books of 2015 were coloring books for grown-ups. But while today’s coloring books are marketed as therapeutic outlets for creativity, the coloring books of the 1960s were decidedly more subversive. New Republic associate editor Laura Marsh talks about her recent deep dive into the political history of adult coloring books.'

'In September 1971, nearly 1,300 prisoners took over the Attica Correctional Facility in upstate New York. What ensued was one of the bloodiest prison encounters in U.S. history. Heather Ann Thompson is an award-winning historian at the University of Michigan. She spent more than a decade researching and piecing together unseen documents and accounts of the Attica Insurgency. The result is her just-released book, Blood in the Water: The Attica Prison Uprising of 1971 and its Legacy. It's a legacy, that she says remains relevant today.' -- WNYC

'Understanding the risks and adversity facing women of color in our culture, particularly Black women and girls, in the era of social movements like Black Lives Matter, remains a constant and very painful struggle. In 2016 alone according to the Washington Post database tracking fatal police shootings in the US, nine Black women have already been tragically killed by the police. In 2015 there were ten. We’re poised to exceed those numbers. Yet, collectively, we’ve paid very little to no attention to the nine women that we’ve already lost by police violence this year or the impact it has on their families and communities.' --  Crystal Hayes

'Nat Turner was convicted of murder and sentenced to death. Parker was accused of rape and acquitted. We need not ignore either of these facts, nor Parker’s film. We should embrace the discomfort we feel and grapple with Turner’s and Parker’s histories as part of the complicated, ongoing national conversations we need to have about race and gender and the work we need to do change our culture. We should neither impulsively sanitize nor demonize either, but instead, confront the horrors of slavery and of sexual abuse and rape culture as well. There is great value in seeing and wrestling with Nate Parker’s Birth of a Nation.' -- +Stephane Dunn

'Historian Heather Ann Thompson discusses her new book, Blood in the Water: The Attica Prison Uprising of 1971 and Its Legacy. She tells PW Radio, "There was a great deal of important civil rights activism in the 1970s," adding, "The state knew the retaking of Attica was going to be a bloodbath." The Attica uprising in New York State, according to Thompson, "is a David and Goliath story...Attica's prisoners became political because of the state's brutality."' -- PW Radio
