There are a number of good reasons why folks should pay attention to Rembert Browne. He’s a good, thoughtful writer. He’s young (28), just a year older than my firstborn. When he took to Grantland to Explain the ’90s, he talked about a program on Nickelodeon that my boys obsessed over, “Legends of the Hidden Temple“.
I listen to what Rembert says, because my younger son, now 21, is a regular Grantland reader, and tells me I should pay attention to the pop culture website.
You should too. Start with his article, Barack and Me:
But that wasn’t the real reason for my insomnia and this body-zapping panic: I would be speaking to the president of the United States of America in 10 hours. On Air Force One. Before his speech in Selma, Alabama, on the Edmund Pettus Bridge to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the march that took place on what became known as Bloody Sunday.
Yes, POTUS asked Rembert to ride along. Can’t think of a better under-30 to do so, either.
