Good Day/Evening, folks! Welcome to the most current edition of Afronerd Radio's Mid Week in Review, airing this Wednesday at 7:30pm EST. Join Dburt and Capt. Kirk as they decrypt this (mid) week's latest Da Vinci coded topics; our impressions of the box office impact (60.2m) of F. Gary Gray's Straight Outta Compton biopic; the passing of educator, politician, SNCC founder and Civil Rights icon, Julian Bond; addressing an issue that was left on the table from them last broadcast-The Root highlights the alleged folly of Black men dressing well in order to survive; fans get a brief glimpse of a stuntman (maybe?) dressed as the Black Panther during the filming of Marvel's Captain America: Civil War; a recent NY Times report asserts that Black people are being excluded from serving on juries at disproportionate rates in comparison to Whites; while geeks are going to crowdsourcing with the hopes of raising 2B pounds in order to bring a fictional Lord of The Rings city into the real world, a IFLS piece posits what Britain's urban centers may look like by 2065; a Dutch newspaper uses the "Nigga" expletive in their title while reviewing author, Ta-nehisi Coates' latest book. And lastly, as we will be attending the Afropunk festival this upcoming weekend, not only will be highlighting normal geekery but we may also thrown in the latest superfight (Cornel West vs. Larry Elder).
