What can you say about an actor who has embodied two of the greatest African American figures of the 20th century on the silver screen in as many years—and to critical acclaim? Only that he’s no doubt on his way to following in the footsteps of Denzel Washington and Sidney Poitier. “The choices that you get to make are those heroic, courageous choices that we want to show our kids, that we want to pass down,” Chadwick Boseman tells us of his role in the 2013 Jackie Robinson biopic 42. “You’re not just playin’ a character, you’re playin’ somebody that you'd like to be like.”

Konichiwa. Ladies and Gents! Welcome to another fantastic sonic voyage courtesy of Afronerd Radio's Grindhouse broadcast airing this Saturday at 6pm (EST). Since our comrade in arms, Daryll B. is vacationing, we will conduct another "mixtape-mashup" show focusing on the latest pop, pulp and political news events. Join your hosts, Dburt and Capt. Kirk as their colloquium covers the following issues: the crew at Afronerd Radio Dburt bore witness to the latest Marvel event, The Guardians of the Galaxy (as it seems poised for a 100m weekend boxoffice take); Dburt also checks out the James Brown biopic, Get on Up; a part two discourse on the Stephen A. Smith suspension and his controversial domestic violence rant; Shadow and Act's Sergio Mims ponders why director, Woody Allen "won't hire a Black actor unless the role calls for one" ; Fear of a Black Panel-the Racialicious blog highlights San Diego Comic Con's diversity panels; the NYPD Eric Graner chokehold death case has been ruled a homicide; in Net neutrality news, some civil rights ogranizations are coming forward to support government and corporate control of the cyberwebs (huh?); is a Change.org petition challenging artists and record companies to stop degrading Black people/culture a strong enough tactic? Why not a class action suit? And lastly, a new USATODAY piece puts the focus on a booming tech economy that is allegedly fueling an urban renaissance. The question remains-how can Blacks and Latinos take advantage of this especially if it's occurring within or adjacent to their neighborhoods? Call live at 646-915-9620.

It was a big day of breaking news in Ferguson Mo. surrounding the shooting death of the young adult that the main stream media insists on calling a teenager and the police officer who shot him. We'll talk about what these new developments could mean as the case moves forward. Then we will talk about the beheading death of American journalist James Foley and Obama's response to it.
This Week on Tarot of Empowerment with Judyth Sult:
Tune in to listen to James Wanless, creator of the famous Voyager deck, be interviewed by Judyth Sult Wednesday, August 20th, www.EmpowerYouRadio.com. Judyth and James will discuss the importance of the major arcana. James will also talk about his new deck, the Sustain Yourself deck. Listeners may call in with questions.
A former Professor of Political Science in the Middle East with a Ph.D. from Columbia University, James Wanless is the prototypical 21st Century “whole man” as he embraces all parts of himself; he does it all and he sustains. Wanless IS the message by the creative, productive, healthy, spirited, energetic and renewable lifestyle that he models for others. He is, indeed, a rare combination of talents as an academic and entrepreneur, visionary and counselor, author and artist, keynote speaker and humorist, futurist and wild green man, soloist and multi-team partner.
As a seeker of spiritual transformation, his journey led him to India, where he contracted a life-threatening disease in India. Subsequently, Wanless took four years to design a revolutionary deck of illuminating insight cards – the best-selling “Voyager Tarot” – as a multi-cultural map of life and “fortune creation tool.” A symbolic and mythic art masterpiece, the Voyager deck led him to work with companies and organizations teaching and training the power of intuitive thinking for such applications as innovation, communication, decision making and personal growth. This work birthed his book, “Intuition @ Work” and podcast series, “Intuition Into Action”.

After the terrible death of James Foley, what should the United States do? Is there action required by Obama? How will the US handle this? Can this situation be managed without military involvement? Answers to these questions and more on tonight's episode of the Current Issues Show.
Topic for tonight show- Do you think the alleged robbery video of Michael Brown caused more harm than good?
On this episode of the ::ANSWERS:: show, we sit down with Michelle Whitfield, AJ Miller and Joe Paul as we discuss the devastating events and overwhelming amount of police presence and force occurring in Ferguson, Missouri after the execution of Mike Brown, an unarmed teenager, by Darren Wilson, a Ferguson police officer.
Eye-witness reports say that Mike Brown was pleading for his life before the officer shot Brown six times, twice in his head in broad daylight and left him in the middle of the street for more than 4 hours. Our conversation surrounds race relations in America, the tragic senseless hunting and killing of black men, what we can do as a society and helping America shine a brighter light on institutionalized racism.
The time for a change is long overdue. We will discuss how we can get there.
Thank you for tuning in.
