Re: “A Charlotte Fashion Maven Turns to Music

Thank you for writing, Wow Bow!!! This is the editor's note to the issue from that particular April 5 issue of Creative Loafing. There is an embed of Kevin's EP in the actual story (see "related stores" at the bottom of the column). There's also a link to Kevin's video in the "related stories" section at the bottom. But I hear your concern and I've added links to his video and music in the text now.

Re: “The root of the cause

For me, Roots, the original was both an experience and an ordeal. It was like watching the life of my own ancestors played out on television night after night, and once was enough; although, I must say that I was also inspired. I felt no shame, I felt no sorrow or pity. It helped me to better appreciate and internalize their ordeal, but I'm not stuck there. I saw it as more than a slave narrative; it was inspiring; it gave me hope and courage, but for some it was an invitation to a continuing pity-party, and that's unfortunate. Such thinking does no justice to Alex Haley or his story. The remake is about economics---money, which is what slavery was all about in the first place, so why would we want to do that again.
