From the Publisher

It was a time of miraculous change in America, as the cry for justice and equality rang out, from the Deep South to the West Coast. And in the Motor City, a new sound was about to explode that would break down the barriers between white and black. Three close friends from the Detroit streets, Effie, Deena, and Lorrell, had the electrifying talent to bring any audience leaping to its feet—and with the help of C.C.'s groundbreaking music and Curtis's vision and ruthless ambition, they were poised on the giddy brink of greatness.

132. Hamilton Is Hitting the Road

Some half a million theatergoers have already seen the hottest musical of the decade, shelling out hundreds of dollars for tickets to see Lin-Manuel Miranda and the cast of Hamilton sing and rap about our scrappiest Founding Father at the Richard Rodgers Theatre. That represents big business for Broadway but only a tiny sliver of the American population—and a well-heeled one at that. The good news is a lot more Americans will soon get their chance to see Hamilton. A Chicago production will open in September and run for at least a year, and a national tour will kick off in San Francisco in Mar

First Listen: Marco Pavé, 'Welcome To Grc Lnd'

Every Southern city suffers from schizophrenia. It's an enduring symptom of the post-civil rights charade we still play around race relations in America.

If you've ever visited, like I used to every few summers for family reunions in my youth, you can sense that unresolved pain in your second cousin's eyes, feel it closing in on you like the humidity, even hear it in the homegrown hip-hop bubbling from the
