In a unique take on our Writers Symposium series, writers Tonja Renée Stidhum (Blavity, Shadow & Act, The Root, etc.) and Shamira Ibrahim (Very Smart Brothas, Washington Post, etc.) explore their ongoing journeys with depression, anxiety, body dysmorphia, and mental illness. They bravely detail how they sought the support of their friends and family members, how each of them chose their therapists, and what gave them the will to carry on even in their darkest hours.

Back To The Motherland (Feat. Myra & Delvecchio Parks of The Repat Diaries)

Since we’re days away from our legendary block party in Wakanda and our collective excitement about our African heritage is arguably stronger than ever before, we chopped it up with Myra and Delvecchio Parks of The Repat Diaries. A married couple who grew tired of their monotonous life in America and decided to begin a new one in Simba’s backyard, The Motherland. They discuss the challenges of homeschooling their 5 year old son, the cultural differences they experienced in their new home, and the complicated dynamics of being accepted as an African-American by our continental brothers and sisters. Additionally, Alex didn’t exactly have the greatest weekend, Jay visited Wakanda and lived to tell about it, and Black Panther is exactly the movie every last one of us deserve.

The Afterparty: "Welcome To Wakanda" (Feat. Law Ware)

Are you looking forward to Black Panther, but have no idea what the hell it's even about because you never read the comic book? Don't worry. We got you. Before Chadwick Boseman and company obliterate the box office, we're putting you up on everything you need to know prior to watching the movie. We break down the mythology of the Black Panther, the cultural signficance of Wakanda, who his cast of supporting characters are, what we're most looking forward to, and how the first big budget predominantly Black feature film has the potential to transform the entertainment industry.

Indigenous activist and environmental organizer Dallas Goldtooth joins us to discuss the struggle for people of color to remain hopeful in our society, his experiences on the front lines of the infamous Keystone XL and Dakota Access protests, the biggest sacrifice he's man as an activist, and the prevalence of anti-blackness in Indigenous communities. Additionally, Alex can't get to Essence Fest fast enough, Jay used to love H.E.R., and did do we have love for the Grammys or nah?  Music courtesy of Mr. TalkBox and VybeBeatz.

Bout My Business (feat. Dave Anderson)

Screen Shot 2018-01-17 at 2.06.17 PM.png

With our holiday hangover (and hiatus) out the way, we're back in business with Mr. Dave Anderson, aka The Business Bully, to discuss his groundbreaking Black Boys Win initiative, how his track record of success propelled him into entrepreneurship, why he refuses to wear suits, and how come Mr. T doesn't get his due as a revolutionary? Additionally, calling Alex a Nutella Queen might get you stomped out, never let Jay name your computer, and Combat Jack's legacy will live on forever.  Music courtesy of Jay Connor for Extraordinary Beats.

The holidays aren't happy for everyone. So we're joined by psychotherapist Quinn Gee of Magnolia Mental Health to discuss how factors like the winter weather, economic anxiety, and our current political climate adversely affect our mental health during the holidays, the importance of establishing healthy boundaries, and how to support your friends and family suffering from mental illness without losing yourself in the process. Additionally, Alex has fond memories of that LaFace Christmas album, the verdict is still out on if Jay has been naughty or nice, and CyHi's new album gets our seal of approval.
