Upcoming Broadcasts

*Due Last Show's Tech Issues and being cut short.....Let's try THIS show again! Same Issues (Maybe a Bit more) REPEAT....sort of: Howdy, folks. We're back after an understandable pre-emption due to last weekend's legendary Afropunk Festival held at Brooklyn's Commodore Barry Park. Check out our impressions of the event during the latest episode of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse Mixtape airing this Saturday at 6pm EST. Join your hosts, Dburt, Daryll B and Capt. Kirk as they discuss the following issues: Dburt's thoughts on the escalation (and evolution) of the other Black experience commonly refered to as Afropunk; a St. Louis mother's empassioned rant critiquing the Black Lives Matter movement goes viral; futurist and entrepreneur, Elon Musk's vacuum travel project might be gaining more traction and viability; a belated hat tip to Shadow and Act for their highlighting of an upcoming film project about African American women who were NASA mathematicians during the Civil Rights era; and while films about Black genius are in development, memetic minstrelsy may get rewarded (again) with Straight Outta Compton garnering Oscar buzz (do they ever give awards that show AA communities in a good light?); DC's Vixen gets her animated closeup. And lastly, famed director, Steve McQueen with the assistance of Hollywood iconic actor/activist, Harry Belafonte may be gearing up to make a Paul Robeson biopic (Oscar, anyone?). Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620. In fact, because of this deep desire for peace, the ruling class leaders of this land, from 1945 on, stepped up the hysteria and propaganda to drive into American minds the false notion that danger threatened them from the East.-Paul Robeson
