If you were to create a soundtrack for a Black Power class, what would you include?  I’ve talked about my Black Power Fantasies course, and as it stands we’re going to have three layers (readings, videos, and music).  I’ve got a handle on the first two, and the third as well, but it occurred to me that some of you might have ideas I hadn’t thought of before.  The thing with music is that it isn’t that much of a burden on kids–just have them listen to X number of tracks on the way from class, or to the gym, or to the club.  I can easily imagine having them listen to something like Parliament’s Chocolate City, or maybe Sonny Rollins’ Freedom Suite.  Or maybe even some Osunlade or Jephte Guillaume for modern day diasporal angles.
