'For several generations, Dr. Maya Angelou has been revered as an awe inspiring voice that pushed boundaries. She opened the eyes and ears of millions to the continuous struggles facing African-Americans. In a new documentary called "Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise," directors Bob Hercules and Rita Coburn Whack recounts the life of the cultural icon — from her childhood in the Jim Crow Alabama, to her work with Malcolm X in Ghana, to reading her inaugural poem for President Bill Clinton. The film weaves together rare and intimate archival photographs, videos, and recordings painting the picture of a life well lived.' -- The Takeaway

Sammy Davis, Jr. (December 8, 1925 - 1990) came up in an era when Black entertainers had to be -- to use contemporary language -- multi-taskers. The young Sammy Davis, Jr. made his name hoofing, as so many Black entertainers did, but at his peak had mastered dance, the stage, film and the recording industry. He also served as a model for how to leverage his celebrity, and his network, for social justice. Mr. Davis was the ceiling that Michael Jackson eventually transcended. Here Mr. Davis performs one of his signature tunes, "Mr. Bonjangles," a song which could have been written for him. Shout-out to Flip Wilson for allowing Mr. Davis to tell his story. #SagGenius

'Occupy Wall Street co-founder Micah White explains why political power will not be captured in street protests, but in the synthesis of social movements with political parties, and how the Left must ditch palliative progressivism and re-engage with the mechanisms of power on the local level if it hopes to become a revolutionary force. White wrote the essay "Two Paths Forward" at his website, and the op-ed "Protests won't stop Trump. We need a movement that transforms into a party" for the Guardian.' -- This Is Hell! Radio
