'Armed with speakers, turntables, light systems, and records, Filipino American mobile DJ crews, such as Ultimate Creations, Spintronix, and Images Inc., rocked dance floors throughout the San Francisco Bay Area from the late 1970s through the mid-1990s. In Legions of Boom noted music and pop culture writer and scholar Oliver Wang chronicles this remarkable scene, which eventually became the cradle for turntablism. These crews, which were instrumental in helping to create and unify the Bay Area's Filipino American community, gave young men opportunities to assert their masculinity and gain social status.'

'At the Brooklyn Museum Susan Rosenberg, a former political prisoner turned writer and teacher, and Nkechi Taifa, Senior Policy Analyst with the Open Society, discuss how movements for change and justice have developed over the last twenty-five years. What has women's leadership meant for the prison movement? How has mass incarceration continued the long history of racism in American life?'

"The 1991 videotaped beating of Rodney King was the dawn of an era. Citizen surveillance of police brutality was born, and it was accompanied by all of the perceptual contradictions that the conundrum of recording police violence against citizens continues to entail: police brutality, police exoneration, and the persistence of pain, frustration and anguish in our communities. In this new era, seeing isn't believing — or rather, seeing isn't a necessary legal representation of the evidence in a case — especially if the alleged perp happens to be police."--James Braxton Peterson
