Arama! Japan Podcast: Black History Month 2020

Last summer, I had the idea of doing a special Pride episode of the Arama! Japan Podcast. Out of this came the idea of doing another special episode in February for Black History Month here in the US. In this episode, me and a group of other members of the African diaspora discuss what draws Black people to Japanese music, Black / mixed race Japanese acts, cultural appropriation, Japan’s reaction to Black Lives Matter, and more.

Featured on the podcast alongside myself this time are Arama! Japan staff member Hasawa, and special guests Imani and Ron.
