What does it mean to take up space where you weren't even expected to appear? Not meekly hiding in the corner, but boldly taking space and letting your voice, and your story, be heard and known?

Left of Black host Dr. Mark Anthony Neal welcomes Sophia Chang, the first Asian woman in hip hop, as well as the former manager of A Tribe Called Quest, Raphael Saadiq, Q-Tip, and members of Wu-Tang Clan such as RZA, GZA, and Ol' Dirty Bastard. She discusses her new memoir, "The Baddest Bitch in the Room," published by Catapult Books.
