Seasons Greetings, people! Check out the latest episode of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse show-airing this Saturday at 6pm EST. For the first Comic Shoppe segment, your hosts-Dburt, Capt. Kirk and the "Uncanny" Daryll B. will empty out the following topics from Santa's stockings: the new Terminator: Genisys trailer hits the cyberwebs; just how will Marvel market the upcoming African themed Black Panther film? What are we to expect regarding the merchandising end of this project? (Think: emblazoned "Black Panther" shirts being worn multiracially...hmm); is the WB encroaching on Marvel's gravitas with the upcoming Suicide Squad movie? Oprah, Will Smith, Jared Leto and Tom Hardy in the same film?; discussing the #savestorm campaign-with Greg Pak's Storm series being threatened with cancellation, how can female and minority centered books be saved going forward? And speaking of another graphic novel that must be supported, the crew waxes about the release of Book #2 of the multi part series, March by Civil Rights icon, Congressman John Lewis.
And then the Afronerd Radio machine continues at 7pm! Join Dburt and Capt. Kirk as they unfurl the following issues: picking up from the last show-we attempt to broaden the discussion on Hollywood's continued antagonism toward Black actors portraying historical/biblical figures (or even fantasy characters like Stormtroopers); Roots drummer, Questlove critiques the silence of hip hop artists on the Ferguson and Eric Garner controversies and lastly, Dburt picks up on what can only be called Victimization Media (fallout on Charles Barkley comments, Ferguson, Garner, etc). YOU WILL BE AMAZED. Call live at 646-915-9620.
