My Scottie Pippen’s Not Throwin’ Away My Shot (Hamilton, Thandie Newton, Cast of Dawson’s Creek, McGrit v. Oklahoma, The Bad Ass Wives of: Fredrick Douglas, Booker T. Washington, Marcus Garvy)

Episode 244

10th July 2020

We take a look at the hidden women who were laying it up, Scottie Pippen, style for notable Black figures Fredrick Douglas, Booker T. Washington and Marcus Garvy. Our hand is on the cancel button and find out why Cards Against Humanity and Hamilton are on the chopping block! Plus a Black perspective and deep dive on the cast of Dawson’s creek, and a winning week for Indigenous peoples!

Episode notes

Having never watched a single episode of Dawson’s Creek, we give our Black takes on the cast, and all the juicy bossip. Thandie Newton has been giving some compelling interviews recounting her experiences of sexual assault, the industry, and shooting Mission Impossible 2 with Tom Cruise which sounded TERRIBLE. We’ve got our hand on the cancel button- is it time to press it on party game Cards Against Humanity, or the Broadway hit now streaming into our Disney+’s Hamilton? Is James the next Lin Manuel Miranda? Probably not but that’s not gonna stop him from taking his: shot. Big wins for the Indigenous Peoples at the Supreme Court, and sports teams. Nnekay walks us through spouses who be workin it,  the unsung heroes behind notable Black figures like Fredrick Douglas, Booker T. Washington, and Marcus Garvy and when we say wives, we mean W I V E S. See how these bomb ass wives helped these men excel into greatness;  because behind every great Michael Jordan, is a Scottie Pippin.
