Crucial Riddims: Reflecting on Babylon

Join Henry Evans for this weeks episode of Crucial Riddims. This week, we will listen to music relating to "Babylon", the concept of living under oppressive structures and systems, specifically relating to Jamaicans and other groups that stem from the African diaspora.

I have been a lifelong lover of music and have had a 40 year love for reggae since I first heard the Bob Marley song Reggae on Broadway as a teenager and find it to be informative, inspirational and transformative. I am a native of Pocatello, and an alum and a former member of the ISU Track and Field Team. In my other life, I work in the Office of Equity and Inclusion and serve as an adjunct for ISU’s Political Science and Sociology departments.
