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 panelists – musicians Emeli Sandé and Corinne Bailey Rae, and the writers Nelson George and Stuart Cosgrove – 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.
Part of The Dear Green Bothy, a cultural programme at the University of Glasgow’s College of Arts hosting creative and critical responses to climate emergency.
