POCO! PODCAST-The Vengeance of Vertigo: Aphasia and Objection in the Political Trials of Black Insurgents- Dr. Frank B. Wilderson III
On this episode of the People Of Color Organize! Podcast we present one of our most venerated radical scholars, Dr. Frank B. Wilderson III. Dr. Wilderson was the keynote speaker for the Abriendo Brecha Activist Scholarship Conference IX at The University of Texas at Austin Friday, February 17, 2012. Dr. Wilderson’s keynote address comes from his published article, The Vengeance of Vertigo: Aphasia and Objection in the Political Trials of Black Insurgents. Believe me it’s that good of an address! I must personally say that I have never listened to an interview by Dr. Wilderson that doesn’t absolutely blow me away. It’s my man FRANK B!!!! Thank youDr. Jared Ball for interviewing Frank on your show. Dialectics, gotta love it. This is yet another address by this prolific and warm brother for your iPod playlist (yes I do have a Frank B. Wilderson playlist). Normally, I would try to explain the show’s subject matter, but you know who this is, it’s FRANK B!
We took the liberty of converting the video to audio which will be available at People of Color Organize! via podcast, audiostream, and mp3 download. We also uploaded and added to this post, the video of this keynote address available below from our youtube channel pocorganize. In a nutshell, you have full access to listen to our dear brother and to spread this clarion call like the world spreads anti-Blackness! If you haven’t picked up Brother Frank’s books not to worry, I have provided links to purchase them below, no more excuses!
Thanks to our comrades from the University of Texas at Austin for accepting our request and using your time and resources to make this video: Joy James, Sarah Ihmoud, Shannon Speed, and João Costa Vargas. Thanks to our very own editor Zari Sundiata, who was very persistent in making sure we obtained this presentation. Extra special shout out from The Ikonoklast to João Costa Vargas (you are just too cool. I saw you in the video) and Joy James (I loved your ostrich analogy, and yes we must “keep it real” or it will leave our rear-ends in the air).
Enjoy this keynote address and make it go viral. Thank you. This episode’s features the music of Tremor’s Caracol (Clorofila – Nortec Cumbia Remix) and HKB Finn’s Live Saver.
