Public Intellectuals‘ editor Teka Lo and contributor Jack O’Kent discuss Lovecraft Country, Episode 9 “Rewind 1921.”
“Where is your fire? I say where is your fire?
Can’t you smell it coming out of our past?
The fire of living…not dying
The fire of loving…not killing
The fire of Blackness…not gangster shadows.
Where is our beautiful fire that gave light
to the world?
The fire of pyramids;
The fire that burned through the holes of
slaveships and made us breathe.”
