I tagged this post as ‘research for the story’ because the embedded radio show highlights some of the history that is integral to a story I’m working on. Check it out for yourself:
You can read a transcribed version of The Hip Hop Generation in Africa: Ghana and Ivory Coast over at AfroPop.
Other interesting links I discovered after this podcast:
