Program that explores moments in the lives of the members of Blackhearts, a gay African-American collective based in NYC. Poet Michael Jared Alexander Mintz[sp?] hosts. Contains performances by and interviews with jazz flautist Fred Carl, poet and author Cary Alan Johnson, and poet Arthur Wilson. Carl talks about performing love songs for another man and his desire to see more out gay black musicians. Johnson reads from his novel Going Places and his poem "Nana" and talks about his sense of "African-ness" and the influence of his family and black feminists on his writing. Wilson reads two of his poems and talks about his influences and the sense of drama in his work. Two men perform love songs that are woven throughout the program.
Sound quality is poor.
