By Staff

NEW YORK, May 17, 2017, 1 p.m. - Redding News Review today congratulated Dr. Tommy Curry of Texas A&M for winning a national award for his show commentary.

Curry reports that he has received the "Alain Locke Public Philosophy Award" from the Society for the Advancement of American Philosophy for his segment on Redding News Review.

The segment entitled "Killing Whites" discussed the movie "Django Unchained" in context back in 2012.

His analysis, from the segment, has since been published in top journals and books like Charles E. Cobb's "This Non-Violent Stuff Will Get You Killed" (Duke University Press, 2014), and Akinyele Omowale Umoja, "We Will Shoot Back: Armed Resistance in the Mississippi Freedom Movement" (NYU Press, 2013). 

"Dr. Curry’s segment was one of the widely listened to and shared perspectives among Black radio listeners and the Black Talk community for well over two years," Show host Rob Redding said. "His perspectives on the Black community have been hailed as brilliant and insightful by the Black Talk Radio community at large and earned him appearances on Dr. Vibe, Our Common Ground with Janice Graham,,, and the Context of White Supremacy with Gus Renegade. There are few Black intellectuals that have a great following among the Black radio community like Dr. Curry. Since 2012, he has made over 100 media appearances and has been recognized for his work in the New York Times,, and most recently NPR. We are proud to have been among the first to recognize his immense level of talent in the discipline and to have provided him the power to be creative on our talk programs."
