Batiste talks about leading protests on the streets of New York and the importance of voting in the upcoming election. While Ayers discusses his recent New York Times article about Ed Eckstine, the first black person appointed president of a major U.S. record label, the industry's approach to Blackout Tuesday, and the autobiography he’s working on about his own history in the business.
