I have to confess… at first, I confused Norman Lear with this guy. I was like, "They gave him a Center? Well, I guess Mr. Roper was a nuanced characterization of a Santa Monica landlord…" Oops. At least they're both veterans of late 70's sitcoms, right?!
Join editor Pat Thomas at the Norman Lear Center tomorrow, Monday, April 2nd, for a presentation on Listen, Whitey! The Sights and Sounds of Black Power, 1965-1975.
He'll be discussing this impressive tribute to the Black Power Movement of the '60s-'70s, and playing tracks from the companion soundtrack album on Light in the Attic Records!
The event starts at Noon, and hey, lunch will be served! The talk takes place in the Geoffrey Cowan Forum (Annenberg Room 207) at the Norman Lear Center [ Ronald Tutor Campus Center, USC Annenberg School for Communication, 3607 Trousdale Pkwy, Los Angeles ]. This event is co-sponsored by the Lear Center's Popular Music Project.
