Episode 343

18th March 2022

James and Nnekay talk about the Ukraine conflict, and racism within the situation, Black female music artists who are slaying it right now, and the first Spider-Woman was BLACK! Valerie the Librarian.

Episode notes

This week while our hearts break for the people of Ukraine we can’t help but notice the different treatment these refugees are getting compared with ones from the Middle East or Africa. And Black Africans trying to flee Ukraine are being met with some racist practices in Ukraine. What’s the best way to give feedback? We’re here to help!  In more fun news, James has come out of his Little Mix hole to experience all the amazing Black music occuring in hip hop, R&B, and pop from Saweetie to Doja Cat, Megan Thee Stallion, H.E.R., and more! Also legends of past, like Tupac, and the influence and legacy he left behind.  In the Main Korner Nnekay talks about the first Spider-Woman Valerie The Librarian- who was Black!
