#103 Black Thought of The Roots Goes “BEyond Expectations”

Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter of The Roots gets personal with stories of his father’s murder, addiction, homelessness, and how thanks to a lot of hard work, he became a multi Grammy Award-winning recording artist.

BEyond Expectations: Engaging Males of Color was co-presented with The City of Philadelphia DBHIDS. The First Person Arts Podcast is made possible thanks to support from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Special thanks to WHYY’s NewsWorks. Photo credit: Darragh Dandurand.
