On this episode of Hip-Hop Can Save America! aka ‘the world’s smartest Hip-Hop podcast’, we think very deeply. It’s a look at the intersection of Hip-Hop and philosophy with Dr. Mark Sanders of the University of North Carolina.
After the flurry of episodes we released during our semi-daily run in September 2020, and before we start dropping a brand new set of shows in April 2021, we wanted to deliver a few episodes that were in the vault, but that we didn’t get to put out during the past year that was a helluva decade. Even though they were recorded a while ago, they are no less valuable to the goal of preserving, protecting, and promoting the ability of Hip-Hop music and culture to Improve society and uplift humanity, so I wanted to make sure we had them on the record.
We can call them the Lost Tapes.
After we drop these few episodes, expect a slew of brand new conversations with some of the nation’s most influential thought leaders that are pushing the Hip-Hop-as-innovation envelope in areas including education, science and technology, health and wellness, social justice, the fine arts, entrepreneurialism and much more.
For now, please take a moment to share and spread the love. Forward the show or a particular episode to anyone you know who might be interested, and in fact, even to people who wouldn’t. We love the idea that this podcast can help convert some non-believers.
In addition, if you feel so inclined, you can help support this show and my other Hip-Hop and social justice related work via my Patreon page at www.patreon.com/mannyfaces.
In the meantime, please enjoy this episode with Dr. Mark Sanders, senior lecturer and undergraduate coordinator in the department of philosophy at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte. We actually spoke almost a year ago now, before all of the pandemic madness had fully set in, but it’s certainly an evergreen conversation. I hope you find our discussion as enlightening as I did.
Here’s our talk with Dr. Mark Sanders.
