Join us for a very special Grindhouse broadcast (The Comic Shoppe and Afronerd Radio at 6 and 7pm, respectively) when we welcome Jamie Broadnax from the stupendous and ever popular BlackGirlNerds.com website.

And do we need more?
And then there's Afronerd Radio at 7pm. Join Dburt and Captain Kirk as they unravel the following Luther-esque mysteries: the Ferguson aftermath spurs Black athletes to become politically active; is Geraldo Rivera correct about likening Black victimization to a form of urban suicide?; is hip hop artist, Jay-Z, the right police misconduct advisor for NY Governor, Andrew Cuomo; the new "Hands Up" anti-police rap video causes outrage and lastly, the minstrelsy continues with a new website entitled lightskinordarkskin.com that judges one's skin tone (really?).
