Filmmaker And Rapper Boots Riley

Riley's new film 'Sorry To Bother You' is a social and political satire inspired by his time as a telemarketer. It stars Lakeith Stanfield, the co-star of 'Get Out' and the television series 'Atlanta.' Riley is the son of grassroots activists. He's also the frontman for the hip-hop band 'The Coup,' a self-described "revolutionary music collective." And Kevin Whitehead reviews a new album of previously lost John Coltrane recordings.
