A panel discussion around Marvin Gaye’s album What’s Going On and its ground-breaking social and ecological politics.
Marvin Gaye’s album What’s Going On, released in 1971, has been lauded as an aesthetic landmark in black music and for its ground-breaking social and ecological politics. Led by DJ and broadcaster Trevor Nelson, four expert panellists – musicians Emeli Sandé and Corinne Bailey Rae, and the writers Stuart Cosgrove and Nelson George – will discuss their own experiences of What’s Going On and asses its influence and ongoing significance at a crucial moment for climate and racial justice, as Glasgow prepares to host the United Nations’ COP26 conference.
Presented as part of The Dear Green Bothy, a collaborative cultural programme from the University of Glasgow’s College of Arts showcasing creative and critical responses to climate emergency.
