Bay Sunday - Public Enemy

About This Item

KPIX Bay Sunday segment from August 30, 1992 with Barbara Rodgers at the Mexican Museum in Fort Mason Center featuring the American hip hop group Public Enemy. As Rodgers puts it: "Some call them the Black Panthers of rap." Includes views of the group performing live at the Warfield in San Francisco and interviews with Chuck D and Flavor Flav, who talk about: racism; politics; hip hop culture; history and the black community.  Chuck D comments on his work,  "I'm here to teach the ignorant whether they be 50 and white or 14 and black."  Flavor Flav speaks on racism, "Racism is a pace that our ancestors set for us.  Right now to this day, racism is a trend that is still being followed."   They also go into detail about the political commentary in their song 'By The Time I Get to Arizona'. This segment was produced by Lori Read, edited by Dee Watt, with camera by Rico Coroner. Supporting text and metadata updated for the web in April 2020 by Lisa Ann Nikkel. Opening graphic designed by Carrie Hawks.
