On this week's Barber Shop Show, Host Richard Steele sat down with Ayana Contreras, host of Reclaimed Soul on Vocalo to talk about the surprising ways that black historical figures have intersected with popular music.
We also heard about Black Poets Speak Out Chicago, a recent event where poetry and protest came together.
