Art Historian Kellie Jones talks about her new book South of Pico, on the flourishing African-American Art scene in Los Angeles in the 1960s and ’70s. Co-host Kate Wolf is joined by first-time co-host Eric Newman in a wide-ranging discussion with Kellie about the social, economic, historical, and artistic forces that influenced a powerful generation of black artists in Southern California whose work continues to resonate. Also, author George Prochnik returns to recommend the work of novelist Irene Nemirovsky, whose stories from both pre- and post-Nazi Europe are chillingly cautionary tales for our times.
