So You're an Artist...


Jose Castro joins us for a third time for a broader conversation. In this uncut, raw interview, we discuss black representation in American art (with a focus in film/TV), allyship in this wave of the civil rights movement, and ways to avoid burnout in order to keep fighting for what's right. Keep up with Jose on Instagram (@the1mrc) and for more information on his education initiatives and self-defense programs, visit www.thenowhouse.org.  Continue protesting, donating, and signing petitions. Change is being made. Find the links to the petitions mentioned at the top of the episode below and check out our Instagram story (@artist.pod) for a larger list of film/book/podcast recommendations for self education on the black experience and history in the US.
