31 BEYCHELLA!!!

00:0000:00

BEYCHELLA!!! AHHHH!!!

We know, everybody is talking about it...because THEY SHOULD BE! This is the blackest/HBCU/Probate/Twerkingest thing you have ever seen and it is magnificent. Yes honey, Beyonce as theatre (credit to Jenna Wortham from Still Processing for coining that phrase). We escape to Nina's car to watch it on the laptop again. Kenya exits several times because she can't take it. Nina gets very passionate about the South and New Orleans. We look at the performance through a critical artistic lens for as long as we can, and then we just STAN! 

Nina is Big Sister Woke Up Like This, Fall '16, Beta Delta Kappa, lol

30: Digest the Good

00:0000:00

We're recording at Karamu y'all! (and get kicked out, lol) Nina's show closed. Juuuuuuiiiiiiccccceeee. Nina's writing a book. Kenya is full. Somebody went to the hospital, and it wasn't what they thought. What saves you? How do you come back to YOU after doing something fabulous? Nathan comes to visit. We read from the mailbag.

 

Undigested good turns to s#@t.

Its been a week y'all! We talk the Black-mitzpah Kenya threw for her son, to give him something other than fear. We talk moving from wrestling with fear to sitting with it. We talk Nina's show (click the link, get your tickets! or at the very least look at the pictures) Moving out of poverty to opportunity. Do your kids HAVE to go to college? Having the right to be angry Black women, fight us if you want to! Be seen, be heard. Raise your voice. Here are some links:

We have a wonderful interview with a dear friend of Kenya's: Mrs. Trina Robinson-Kemie! Dancer, Wife, Mom, Owner and Operator of Rockstar Dance Fitness in Burbank, CA. She gives us some inspiration about bouncing back from your low place, inspiring yourself through faith and creating the legacy you want for your family. This was a quick one as interviews go, because she is about business! But there are some golden nuggets in there, so grab a pin and paper honey!

 

We talk about everything from Diastasis Recti to The Four Agreements. Get ready, and here's where  you can find out more about her:

Its easy to get conditioned into only accepting quickies. We talk about flirting starting in the morning, so that they imagination is on FIRE by the time we get home from work. GET IT when you can, morning, noon, night. LOL!

 

Nina figures out her hubby loves her preggo body, that's why they got so many kids. 

Kenya either has a knife fetish or she was a circus performer in past life

24 We Baaaqqq!!!

00:0000:00

***UPDATE*** Nina made a nerd mistake, had a slip of the tongue, so before y'all come for me (clears throat) Vibranium is the element in Wakanda, and part of Cap's Shield, Adementium is what is in Wolverine's Skeleton. I KNOW! How could I? I was just so excited. Go lay down. WAKANDA FOREVER!!!!

 

We missed y'all! We are all over the pl -- WAKANDA FOREVER -- may be shouted at random moments throughout this episode. We sing songs. We twerk. We talk about acting and dance. Nina met GregAlan Williams. Kenya's baby got into a summer intensive with the Dance Theatre of Harlem. WAKANDA FOREVER. We have Alchemist moments. Nina explains "malapropism" as Kenya says words. 

 

Oh yeah its Mardi Gras too

Some History to prep you for BLACK PANTHER:

https://www.theshadowleague.com/story/the-cultural-significance-of-marvel-s-the-black-panther

 

For those who are planning on seeing Black Panther but don't know the storyline or do know the storyline and want a trip down memory lane with the comic books. #rp

1) The Black Panther character was introduced in The Arrival. in Fantastic Four (April 1966) #52. 

T' Challa's first appearance! 

The Fantastic Four head to Wakanda, the African nation where Black Panther is king.

The Black Panther Party for Self Defense was founded in October 1966.

2) The title of #BlackPanther is a ceremonial one. It’s hereditary. All monarchs of Wakanda are known as the Black Panther. King T’Challa is the current Black Panther.

3) Black Panther is the first black super hero in “mainstream” comics.

4) T’Challa has a PhD in Physics from Oxford University. His nemesis in the film Erik Killmonger (M. B. Jordan) has his PhD in Engineering from MIT.

5) T’Challa was married to Storm (marriage was annulled after 6 years) In an alternate timeline they had a son named Azari.

6) Due to a meteorite crash in Wakanda, the country has a rare mineral resource called vibranium (Captain America’s shield is a mix of vibranium and steel)

7) Wakanda is the most technologically advanced country on earth and it has never been colonized by any European nation.

8 The Dora Milaje are the elite warrior women who protect Black Panther. They are also known as the Adored Ones/Midnight Angels.

9) Black Panther is faster than Wolverine and Captain America, he can run up to 50 MPH.

10) Black Panther is immune from all diseases, he is the richest man in the Marvel universe, his suit is bulletproof, and his superpowers include hearing, sight, smell, and strength.

Major shout to my Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Bro. Kamasi Hill for putting this amazing Black Panther history together.
