Art, Race, and Capitalism with Juno Diaz

I promised a few weeks ago that there would be more discussions on here about the role and treatment of women and people of color in the publishing world, and I have a new post in the works along those lines. Unfortunately, I’m still laboring under the work landslide and so, in lieu of my own thoughts, I offer up this wonderful video of a talk by Dominican-American author Juno Diaz. As the title suggests, he looks at how race and money war in the world of artistic endeavors. It’s long — over an hour — but well worth setting aside some time to watch.
