As an African-born queer man growing up in London and New York, Mwenso and special guests delve into a wide range of his own discoveries while shedding light on the Black experience though discussion, historical recordings, and performance.
In A Form of Protest, Michael Mwenso examines music as a form of activism, and the role it has played in pushing the boundaries on civil rights, human rights, class inequality and more. Mwenso brings his own story to the discussion, sharing his personal experiences in defying social norms and moving against the grain to create music that pushes boundaries.
