We Need a Black History Month Redux (Take That Blackface Off)! with Guest Co-host Angélique Roché (Blackfacepalooza, JLO at the Grammys, Something Good- Negro Kiss, Black Buffy, Boomerang Reboot)

Episode 167

We’ve got the fabulous Angélique Roché, from Marvel and SYFY Wire fame! We discuss JLO and the Grammy’s (who thought it was ok for her to give the Motown tribute)? Angelique proposes we need to get a redux on Black History because it’s been ruined between all the blackface, Liam Neeson, Kanye and more. Has every white person done blackface? James walks us through the first ever on screen Black Kiss dating all the way back to 1895 and the importance and revolutionary act of Black love on the screen. 

Episode notes

We’ve got the fabulous Angélique Roché, is a journalist, attorney, content creator, and communications professional focused on the intersections of activism, policy, politics, current events, and nerd and pop cultures as seen on Marvel and SYFY Wire, and she makes herself right at home! We discuss JLO and the Grammy’s (who thought it was ok for to give the Motown tribute). Angelique proposes we need to get a redux on Black History because it’s been ruined between all the blackface, Liam Neeson, Kanye and more. James is assuming that if you’re white you’ve probably done blackface at some point. And then these two blerds nerd out heavily on Charmed (old/new), and Buffy (old/potential reboot?). Who’s more treacherous to cross- the Beyhive or the Babylon 5 hive? James walks us through the first ever on screen Black Kiss dating all the way back to 1895 and the importance and revolutionary act of Black love on the screen. Also in honor of our guest cohost we have new mics! Enjoy that new sound in your ear holes!
