Currently listening to: "I'm not a human being", show on Sun Ra from Radio4All.net

The show, from a series called "The Chill Room" is a mixture of jazz musician Sun Ra's music/performances and a lecture he gave at Berkeley as part of his "The Black Man in the Cosmos" class. A book I was leafing through gave a great summary of Sun Ra, when it said that in saying that he was from Saturn, Sun Ra was announcing his total and complete revolt against a racist society.
