A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

8:46: Dave Chappelle

YouTube / Online / Stage

On June 6, in a socially-distanced outdoor setting in Yellow Springs, Ohio, Dave Chappelle walked onstage, lit cigarette in hand, and said, “It’s hard to figure out what to say about George Floyd, so I’m not going to say it yet.” But in the nearly 30-minute Netflix special that follows, available for free on YouTube, he remains focused on Floyd and the events that preceded his death, from the murders of Eric Garner, Trayvon Martin, and Philando Castile to the South Carolina church shooting. Chappelle delivers the only kind of humor you want to hear in times like these—always funny, but never slighting the severity of the moment. —J.V.
