“A Family Conversation” is a storytelling audio series that features weekly discussions between blogging cousins LadyG and Ron Brown on current events along with favorite posts from each other’s blog.

Updated: 7/3/2021

Contains adult language

In this post, the cousins are talking about:

  • Ron’s milestone birthday–chile, he fine as frog’s hair!
  • How Ron shut LadyG’s mouth
  • An “irksome” new friend who introduces Ron to some new thangs
  • The fact that slow talking Southerners are not dummies.
  • Whether or not Gil Scott-Heron was the first rapper
  • Ron presents Scott-Heron’s “The Bicentennial Blues” which points to the paradox of Independence Day.
  • The importance of research
  • Defining terms
  • Work songs as the musical ancestors to the blues and appreciating the fact that they gave birth to R&B/Soul music and damn near everything else thereafter!
  • America’s legacy of hypocrisy
  • Babies on buses; a horrible incident in South Carolina (March 2, 1970)where a group of 150-200 white men rocked and turned over school buses during integration.



Evil that once drove angry whites to overturn school buses is stirred again

Join us next Friday, July 8th for a continuation of the conversation.

Lady G appreciates your comments ! 💋💋
