SORT BY Relevancy
LET'S BE CLEAR: This a DIRECT shot popular shows like "Empire", "Scandal", "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" and the likes. Stemming off our BlogTalkRadio featured episode, "SLAVE THEN, SLAVE NOW!", we will debate whether reality shows and television dramas of today really mimic how blacks were mocked in blackface during the 19th and 20th century, even 50 years ago.
As we revealed last episode, the tactics used by slave owners left Black Americans and other minorities stripped of their native tongues, religion and culture and even today, Black Americans seem to be subjected to a NEW form of slavery.
Are blacks in a much better position landing (some) television roles? Or is this the same minstrel show only masked to appeal to the masses while implanting negative stereotypes are blacks.This episode, we discuss the effects of television on Black Americans today, if any.

At an early age, Richard Sirgiovanni knew he wanted to be a cartoonist. "I think I needed an escape and fell heavily into this magical world of imagination and cartoons. I was a big comic book reader and began drawing and copying my favorite super heroes. I went on to starting to create my own characters at an early age and started creating my own comic strips. I continued through grammar and high school as the cartoonist for the school newspaper. In my teens I started having my own comic strips published in local newspapers. I went on to college at the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan and studied cartooning with Harvey Kurtzman who is the creator of Mad Magazine. From there I have continued freelancing in newspapers, book covers and advertisements."
He is also a musician. "I started playing drums and singing at fourteen. Like most, I played in bands as a teen at high school dances and parties. Later I was in a original band playing in the NYC club circuit. At one point, we were playing the circuit that Cyndi Lauper, Madonna and Bon Jovi were as they were all coming up."
Most recently, Richard has created an animated show called The Grimps. "I started developing the thought about making the story something magical and fun for kids. I came up with the idea about these minstrels that lived 500 years ago. They were wonderful musicians and local celebrities. The evil wizard (Spectar) was jealous of them and cursed and banished them for eternity in the Forest of Dingle. Until 500 years later, their friend and wizard, who was also cursed, named magic Alex finds a reverse spell that turns them back to humans. But only from sunset to sunrise. So now they can resurface as this pop rock group called The Grimps. The other part of the inspiration was to be able to present The Grimps to the public as a legitimate rock n roll band by creating original music."
In life there are many talented individuals whose musical gifting and expressionism appears effortless to audiences. Some are born with these gifts while others are trained to become great minstrels and psalmists. However, there are those who are exceptionally blessed to marry their natural gifting with their learned skills to become known as “masters” of their craft! Having been compared to Oscar Peterson, Thomas Whitfield and Richard Smallwood, Isaac S. Cates immerges on the gospel music scene as an artist with an astonishing musical knowledge, skill and unparalleled creativity that places second, only to his passion for ministry. Born in Kansas City, Kansas and affectionately known as a child prodigy, Isaac has always shown a great interest in music. With a strong spiritual foundation laid by his parents, Isaac’s participation in the music ministry at his local home church began at a very young age of four, as did his formal training. Trained in piano performance, writing and composition, having studied piano performance and Choral conducting at the University of Missouri-Kansas City in his short life. He has won numerous accolades in local, state, regional and national competitions earning him various awards and recognitions as one of the most skilled and talented musical gifts to the world. Isaac has served as workshop clinician abroad, teaching vocal diction and serving as adjudicator for several vocal, instrumental and composition seminars and competitions.

Keeping matters terse, welcome to the latest edition of Afronerd Radio's Mid Week in Review! Join Dburt and Captain Kirk this Wednesday at 7:30pm (EST) as they unravel the following topical mysteries: picking up what we failed to address from our last broadcast-the Bring Back Our Girls campaign as it relates to the vicious Nigerian kidnapping tragedy (as well as the media, FLOTUS and Ann Coulter's involvement) ; football player, Michael Sam made history last week, as the St. Louis Rams made him the 249th overall choice in the 2014 NFL draft...but not without controversy; and dovetailing off of the Sam controversy, just what is the state of Black masculinity from image to reality (can traditionalism be preserved without trampling over the rights and agenda of other protected classes?); Batman vs Superman director, Zack Snyder reveals the Batfleck suit and Batmobile via tweet; we begrudglingly discuss the latest in minstrel affairs-the Jay-Z/Solange Knowles tiff (a very brief discussion); Dburt revisits the dumbest Wheel of Fortune contestant fiasco and lastly, from the NY Times Opinion Pages, educators, writers and technologists debate whether computer coding should be included as part of the elementary school curriculum. Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
Join me as I chat with Kevin Bond perhaps the finest producer in the gospel music industry today! In many circles he has been dubbed “The Million Music Maker.” Few could argue with that assertion or his credentials, as his name and production credits have thoroughly permeated the most prominent gospel CD and cassette jackets over the past 20 years. We will be listening to his tribute to Nelson Mandela.
A native of Chicago, Illinois, Kevin arrived on the gospel music scene in 1983. That year, as a 19 year-old prodigy he became the organist for the highly acclaimed Edwin Hawkins Music and Arts Seminar Mass Choir. Teaming with gospel pianist extraordinaire Richard Smallwood and a host of other gifted minstrels (including guitarist Jonathan Dubose and drummer/bassist Joel Smith), Kevin formally introduced himself to the gospel nation on the 1984 EHMAS release, Angels Will Be Singing. www.kevinbond.com
