Bonus: You Can’t Be Rich, Famous, and Politically Radical with Jared Ball

This bonus episode was made possible by the Marguerite Casey Foundation. V chats with Jared Ball, professor of communication studies at Morgan State University, about the importance of scrutinizing the media we consume, why he doesn’t feign objectivity in the classroom, and why he describes the term “Black buying power” as both a myth and propaganda. Plus, his thoughts on how performers like Snoop Dogg and Jay-Z have evolved – or not – as they’ve reached middle age.
