Nobuntu: Tuesday / November 19, 2019 / 8 p.m.



With pure, resonant voices and exquisite harmonization, Nobuntu has become the darling of the world’s festival stages. This radiant a cappella quintet is Zimbabwe’s first all-female professional vocal ensemble, a musical force that stakes their claim as practitioners of mbube, the distinct style of South African singing—historically performed by men—recognizable by its rhythmic unity, complex harmonies, and nuanced textures. In inventive performances of Zimbabwean folk, Afro jazz, gospel, and their own original songs, Nobuntu celebrates the vibrant identity of their culture and the belief that music transcends all boundaries.

TV mogul says Supreme Court case against Comcast is about 'economic inclusion': Lawsuit for Black Media Inclusion to be Heard by US Supreme Court Nov. 13

Wealth inequality has risen near the top of the agenda just about everywhere — the Democratic presidential race, the Business Roundtable, and even the Supreme Court, where next month justices will hear a $20 billion discrimination lawsuit brought by a television company whose CEO says he seeks no less than “economic opportunity for all Americans.”


Byron Allen, the chief executive of Entertainment Studios Inc., alleges that cable giant Comcast (CMCSA) refused to license his company’s channels — for instance, Cars.TV and Pets.TV — because he is black, claiming Comcast discriminates against minority-owned programming in its licensing agreements.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, based in San Francisco, ruled earlier this year that the case could proceed, and the Supreme Court announced in June that it would hear the case.

Civil rights lawsuits against Comcast and Charter:

Allen’s company, Entertainment Studios, filed lawsuits against Comcast and Charter Communications (CHTR) in 2015 and 2016, saying both cable companies had violated the Civil Rights Act of 1866, which established the right of African Americans to enter into contracts as white individuals could. Allen points to the cable companies’ repeatedly declining to license his networks, in contrast with other distributors like Direct TV (T), Dish Network (DISH), and Verizon (VZ) that agreed to carry his programming.

Pa. out front: How the argument over reparations is moving into state capitols

By John L. Micek Friday October 4, 2019

We first reported back in June that state Rep. Chris Rabb was drafting legislation that would both provide reparations for descendants of African slaves and provide some redress for the ensuing centuries of institutional racism.

And while Rabb, a Philadelphia Democrat, has begun seeking co-sponsors for his legislation, and researching the best way to go about reparations, he’s found himself a part of a larger national conversation about America’s original sin. And it’s one that is moving from Washington D.C. to state capitols across the country,

As our colleagues at Stateline.org report this week, lawmakers in four states, California, Texas, New York, and Vermont, have each introduced separate reparations proposals. Each are states that outlawed slavery after the Civil War — or never allowed it in the first place.
