Founded in 1970 by Motown Records’ Berry Gordy, Black Forum served as a platform for political spoken word and music during a time of civil unrest. With contributions from some of the era’s most visible and influential thought leaders, including Amiri Baraka, Elaine Brown, Stokely Carmichael, Langston Hughes, and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., eight albums and one single were released under the Black Forum label imprint from 1970 until 1973. This program includes discussions with and performances by contemporaries of Black Forum as well as younger artists working in its legacy, highlighting the enduring relevance of the label’s progressive themes over 40 years later.
