Around these parts we’re pretty excited about—and thankful for—our publisher’s new name. What was The Applied Research Center is now Race Forward: The Center for Racial Justice Innovation. To celebrate, we have a new mix from our resident DJ, Jay Smooth and we’re sharing it with you just in time for Thanksgiving. If you loved our fall mix, When Autumn Comes Around,” you’ll adore this soulful mix featuring Invincible, Big Daddy Kane, Nina Simone, Curtis Mayfield and a gang of others. Enjoy and have a happy and safe holiday!—Editors
