Roberto Carlos Garcia – Black Maybe, Afro-Dominican Roots and Casta | Q – Haiti, the Dominican Republic and and musings on travel

Get Fresh Books LLC and Červená Barva Press

Poet, storyteller, and essayist Roberto Carlos Garcia is a self-described “sancocho […] of provisions from the Harlem Renaissance, the Spanish Poets of 1929, the Black Arts Movement, the Nuyorican School, and the Modernists.” Garcia is rigorously interrogative of himself and the world around him, conveying “nakedness of emotion, intent, and experience,” and he writes extensively about the Afro-Latinx and Afro-diasporic experience. His second poetry collection, black / Maybe, is available from Willow Books.  Roberto’s first collection, Melancolía, is available from Červená Barva Press.

The Gumbo Session – Juneteenth, Lee P. Brown, Chapultepex Club and Charles Law

Terrell Wayne a.k.a. Q in the studio

This is the gumbo session – a mix of current events, topics I’m passionate about and random ideas I’ve been working on. In this episode I talk about former Mayor Lee P. Brown, the Chapultepex Club of the Houston Y.W.C.A., Howard Law and the history behind Juneteenth.

What Juneteenth around the corner I treated this episode of the Gumbo session as a 2nd Black history month. Here in Texas, Juneteenth is a big deal and every June feels like another Black history month.

Bootleg Like Jazz – Pourquoi France

A multicultural space for personal expression.

by: Q


Bootleg Like Jazz is the Black American, Minority and Immigrant experience. It’s a mixture of Afro-Latino and the Black Diaspora, fake news and the underground, subjugation and determination. Bootleg Like Jazz is a multicultural space for conversations about diversity in travel and art, languages and culture, society and perspective. Bootleg Like Jazz comes from a combination of Black History and Jazz history. Our experience as a Black American or a African-American,  began in this country as a diminished experience. We were 3/5ths of a human. Subjugated, denied education, denied having family and only given the scraps. Here comes jazz, in order to learn how to play music Black folks had to learn by ear, from watching other people perform and from knowledge passed down. That’s Bootleg Like Jazz. It’s the idea that they gave us scraps but we turned it into Jazz. Jazz as an art form is built off of diminished chords and diminished opportunities. Art is personal. The musicians, you know, couldn’t legally learn to read or write due to slave codes. This intensifies over time. Most jazz chords are diminished in some form so I thought to myself, jazz is really a bootleg art form. Whether it be finger placement that’s funky or how someone decides to play it that way. It all comes from Black American Musicians jamming and figuring out what sounds the best. The original Founders of Jazz probably didn’t have any formal musical education or separate but equal musical education and many jazz musicians in general started out with a feeling. When Jazz was gaining popularity it occurred during some of the most difficult days in the black community. They were able to create something that people from foreign countries, diverse socioeconomic backgrounds and different tongues would come to love about a people who were once subjugated. That’s the African-American experience – the Multicultural experience. It’s a mixture of being neglected yet finding a way to survive – thrive.
