Towns across the American south are reckoning with whether or not to tear down Confederate statues in public spaces. For New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, taking down the monuments felt like a necessity, despite the tension it brought forth in his city. “I didn’t start the problems with race in this country, but I did force the people of New Orleans to confront them,” Landrieu reflected in in this short interview at the 2017 Aspen Ideas Festival.
Stephen Thompson | August 7, 2017 — Maggie Rogers became a viral star on the strength of a video in which Pharrell Williams raves about a demo of what’s become her signature song, “Alaska.” Since then, Rogers has signed a label deal, toured extensively and released a sweetly approachable, inventively arranged EP called Now That The Light Is Fading.
For her Tiny Desk debut, Rogers performed all three of the EP’s best-known songs, opening with the recent singles “On + Off” and “Dog Years,” the latter of which she calls “a song for all the pups.” Then, after dismissing her band, she treated us to a few warm words about public radio before introducing “Alaska” — a song whose buoyantly clever arrangement translates beautifully to the solo acoustic treatment she gives it here. She needn’t have buttered us up; we were already all in.
Now That The Light Is Fading is available now.

I have never incited violence or called for it as that would br wrong in every single way. My family has received thousands of death threats. Baked Alaska chemical attack. No freedom of speech in America. There are fake videos of me posted by folks claiming i was yelling racial slurs at African Americans which are wrong and you can clearly tell that it is not my voice. My family have been receiving very credible death threats all through the night.
Kessler began to speak but was quickly drowned out by the crowd chanting ‘say her name’ and yelling at him. Members of the crowd attacked and punched Kessler. The crowd swarmed the podium and Kessler ran away.
