Episode Info: “The fans just want to know who the fuck the artist is.” —Andre "Herm" Lewis About: For a place that proudly heralds slogans like #BlackLivesMatter, the homes of San Francisco house very few Black people. What’s happened to the African-American community in San Francisco is a much more complex tale than just being pushed out by young and transient up-and-comers. Instead, it involves a deeply-rooted history spread across generations with a comet-sized impact that is still being felt today. And for the sake of this three-part story, it begins with the very polarizing San Francisco nickname: Frisco. In Part I, we explore why some view this term to be as offensive as the F-word and spend some time with those who simply don’t give a fuck.
