In this special episode of ‘People’s Party with Talib Kweli,’ Kweli and co-host Jasmin Leigh invite CNN’s Don Lemon to the show. This shortened episode drops with a whole lot of subtext. Lemon and Kweli got into a heated argument in Ferguson, MO in 2014 — when both men were in town because of the shooting of Mike Brown, with Kweli protesting in the streets and Lemon covering for CNN.
Now, six years later, they’ve come back together on ‘People’s Party’, focused on unity and healing in the wake of further police violence. The conversation is illuminating, thoughtful, and full of insight on Trump, Bubba Wallace, black men supporting one another, the protest/ defund conversation, and Lemon’s own storied career.
If you’re new to the People’s Party but a fan of Lemon, check this episode out — it’s a chance to see the host with his guard down and his fierce passion evident in every sentence.
If you’re already up on Kweli, Jasmin Leigh, and the People’s Party catalog, well then… you KNOW what’s up and you’re going to love this one.
