Former Billboard and Vibe editor Danyel Smith (who used to write for the Bay Guardian!) joined us on Music Book Club to talk about how she put a very personal spin on her history of Black women in pop, Shine Bright. It was an insightful and often hilarious talk that can’t be missed. Up next: Join us February 21 at noon PST on Zoom for house music legend DJ Disciple talking about his incredible The Beat, the Scene, the Sound: A DJ’s Journey through the Rise, Fall, and Rebirth of House Music in New York City.
