This week we are on FIRE! THE SUPER BOWL came and went, but we're not here to talk about sports... we are here for GAGA. She dangled her ass into the arena like a spider and killed it! Also James touches on a Sundance lady brunch of the rich and the famous where they had a moving conversation about race... Celebrities they're just like us! James took himself out on a little Broadway Baby Date with himself to go see Mel B from the Spice Girls sing it up as Roxy Heart. Did she do a good job? Has she improved since her stint as Mimi in Rent way back when Nnekay saw her in the early 00s? Nnekay surprises James with a little information regarding her foray into the world of THEATER. She might just be ready for a new chapter in her life! Now on to the Korners! James is up first this week and is covering The Pomo Afro Homo Theater Troupe- Black. Queer. Theater. 'nough said! They have been producing incredible work work for years, so James breaks it down, by covering selections of sketches, their founders, and the future! Nnekay has a Hodge Podge Korner this week ya'll which she has titled- Just The Tips with Nnekay. She is covering books to help children learn compassion, Ariana Huffington's tips on how to combat outrage but to still stay active, as well as a tip for great cinema, the PBS documentary called Birth of a Movement about 1900s activist, William Monroe Trotter, who fought against the original extremely racist movie, Birth of a Nation. We also have a new Korner where we toss it to the Korner Kids and see what they've been up to! So hold on to your butts, get ready to rumble, and check your lace front, because we are ready to get you PUMPED.

Minority Korner

James was boy on a train last week but not as crazy, or as exciting. We've both watched '13th' Ava DuVernay's new documentary about Mass Incarceration, and how slavery is alive and well in our American society. It is a must watch for all Americans! Does Beyonce deserve a Nobel Prize? Bob Dylan got one.. What about the Lohans? Let's give props to some of the ladies throughout history who've managed to break into this Nobel Boys Club. James breaks down all the controversy around the film 'Birth of A Nation', not the racist one from 1915, the 2016 one that's potentially more problematic in it's treatment with women. Oh and there's the director/writer/producer/lead actors history with rape. Once again we need to have a conversation about how we treat and talk about women. History Korner is back from the grave and it looks like Thomas Edison is at it again, stealing ideas, but this time from a Black man. Quizlet Korner is going to get NASTAY for you as we focus on the the third and final debate. Also, James explains why we took the week of last week, sharing a tragic story, that sheds light on a first hand encounter of the police. In light of that this episode is dedicated to James' roommate Noah Witke, a beautiful, compassionate, loving, talented individual... may he rest in peace.
