That’s not some meta description of this post; it’s me simply stating that I have a blog in the works, and it will be released into the Talk of Taylor world very soon.
But for now . . . it’s time to expand our knowledge of a certain genius that goes by the name of Donald Glover, or Childish Gambino if you’re more into music than acting.
You’ve surely heard about Gambino’s new song, “This Is America”, and you’ve definitely heard of, if not seen, the video to the song. It was raw, it was shocking; it was truth that we choose to block out of site.
Glover is also the creator and one of the main characters in “Atlanta”, another show loved by many.
Interestingly enough, there are similarities in the events that transpire within “Atlanta” and the actions that are seen throughout Gambino’s 4-minute video to “This Is America”. But instead of me pointing those out from a distanced POV, I’ll share this gem with you.
Soak it in. Share your thoughts. Share your agreements and disagreements.
We need conversations these days; real ones.
