Making and Being 

by BFAMFAPHD collective "We wrote this book for those of you who want a holistic art education that includes how to be both more fully present with yourself and with others. The term holistic means that the parts of any given system are intimately interconnected; that they are understandable only in relation to the whole system. How can you talk about making a new project without talking about labor conditions? How can you talk about labor conditions without talking about payment? It’s time to address your artistic labor, your budgets your storage units, your gifts, and your well-being."


Being Seen

Being Seen is an in-depth exploration of culture’s role in resolving the tension between how we are seen and how we see ourselves. Focused on the gay and queer Black male experience


Still Processing

Still Processing is about culture in the broadest sense. That means television, film, books, music — but also race, the culture of work, dating, the internet and how those all fit together. Join Wesley Morris and Jenna Wortham as they work it out on Thursdays.


S-Town

John despises his Alabama town and decides to do something about it. He asks a reporter to investigate the son of a wealthy family who’s allegedly been bragging that he got away with murder. But then someone else ends up dead, sparking a nasty feud, a hunt for hidden treasure, and an unearthing of the mysteries of one man’s life.


Contrapoints 

Natalie Wynn is an American YouTuber whose videos explore politics, gender, ethics, race, and philosophy on her channel ContraPoints. Wynn's videos cover political and social issues, often providing counterarguments to right-wing political argumentation.
