ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Award-winning activist and spoken-word performer Yolo Akili's first feature length spoken-word album,"Purple Galaxy," on the Queer Renaissance label is a compilation of Akili's most celebrated works, including the witty "Fagets R not Responsible","We are not the Kind of boys we want", "Neighborhood Association" and the highly erotic title track "Purple Galaxy."Akili states:Purple Galaxy is an album about exploring the boundaries of sexual and gendered identities. It's about embracing an erotic that is fierce, political, and uninhibited."

Whether its challenging the politics of desire in black gay male communities in "We are not the kind of boys we want" or challenging violence against women in the narrative hit "The Neighborhood Association" Purple Galaxy truly reflects a progressive politic that is both highly imaginative and undoubtedly inflammatory.
