This week we are joined by resident life coach and guru: Jennifer Covington of the Shine on Sista Podcast. Her third time on the show- so you know we’re gonna leave feeling sparkly! James tries to pitch Jen shows and movies he thinks she should be watching. Gotta come correct with Jen! Today’s episode really feels like a send up to Black Lady superheroes of yesterday, and today (hence the title). James saw Harriet the movie starring the almost EGOT Cynthia Enrivo, about the bad ass real life superhero herself. We talk about what the critics are saying, and James gives his full review, but seeing the movie inspired him to dig deeper into who this woman was! We think we know Harriet Tubman but we have no idea! Guaranteed you will be GAGGED with the fact bombs James is going to drop on you- and no exaggeration she is one of the most inspiring, extraordinary, individuals that has ever lived! And a black lady superhero that’s kicking ass today: Regina King in The Watchmen which is taking a problematic dope ass comic book and mixing our favorite things: superheroes and social justice: whaaaaat??? And with the holidays just around the corner Jen’s got some tips to keep us sane during the Holidaze (as she's coined) and dealing with our family. These tips are hot- and just might save your upcoming holidays with the fam bam! Why aren't you all watching The Good Place!? Also looks like James may have caved and joined the Disney + train another platform, but take note he might be able to help you swindle the system. Also James took a DNA test turns out he’s 100% that Grinch? And which Holidays are Jen side eyeing?  Lets get into it Korner Kids! It’s time to Learn, Laugh, and Play, right here at Minority Korner- because together: we’re the majority!

Nnekay and James are back giggling in the korners. Trying to figure out how to set the record straight? No. Setting the record right? No. Setting the record on the appropriate course. Yes. They are here to discuss as what Marvin Gaye and James say, "What is going on?" They discuss horrible incident that happened in Las Vegas, what we can do about it, and how this keeps happening to America by Americans. The semantics of the media... who is called a lone wolf, a thug, a terrorist? In Nnekay's Korner, she is talking about two stories about two good things moving in the right direction, Harvard students protesting Betsy DeVos, and how Black Lives Matters cannot be sued. To round out her korner, Nnekay talks about way that we can take care of ourselves when the world looks bleak. James taking a trip to Latin America for Latinx History month, which is from September 15th- October 15th. In his korner he is taking a page from Anderson Cooper's book and doing and expose on what is going on in Venezuela. How Nicolas Maduro, the president of Venezuela is changing the country since Hugo Chavez, and has just been declared (by the US) a dictatorship. How are the people of Venezuela are rebelling and creating their own narrative. This is your last change to enter our 100 Minority Korner review sweepstakes! We're taking a little bit of a break (two weeks) and will be back with our 100th episode!!!! Enjoy the week and thanks for listening!!!!!!

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.
