Jackson on to something with his recent criticism of Black Brits being optioned for American roles over homegrown talent? (or does Jackson himself, gobble up A LOT of roles-just saying); a new AtlantaBlackstar.com piece sheds light on Nigeria's burgeoning film industry (Nollywood); the University Prep Science and Math Middle School's top ranked chess program has successfully raised funds to go to the SuperNationals; And lastly, NYT columnist, Charles Blow critiques actor, Mark Ruffalo (The Avengers franchise) over a tweet regarding how to dismantle White supremacy.  Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620
