Image Comics has been steadily piquing my interest. Their latest announcement is pure Chicken Soup for the Blerd Soul. Black History in its Own Words by Ronald Wimberly (Prince of Cats) will be available in stores...drumroll please...FEBRUARY 2017! Just in time for Black History Month. The work caries quotes, portraits and illustrations of Black role models and leaders drawn by Wimberly.
Among those represented are Angela Davis, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Kanye West, Zadie Smith
I love Black Nerd and Geek Culture. It's so nice to have a safe and welcoming environment to geek out and cosplay in. Needless to say, when I came across Black Girl Nerds, I felt right at home. One of the things that I admire about Black Girl Nerds, is that they also noticed a lack of social media representation for black male nerds. Just yesterday, @BlackGirlNerds wondered where all the Black guy nerds were at. I mean, can you blame them? I rarely got to see the nerdy side
There's been a couple photos on facebook of a Black actors and sctresses as some of the most beloved and infamous characters from the DC Universe. Some of the cast choices were good, but I felt I needed to weigh in on the topic. Below is my dream cast for an all black starring cast. They will interact with every race, creed, color, religion, etc., but the Black actors and actresses will be the stars...unlike most Hollywood movies. Anyway, here goes: For the role of Bruce Wayn
The short film I'm appearing in, Misery, got approved for an IMDb page, which means I got approved for one as well! *squeal* I am very excited about this! I am still trying to figure things out. I am not the best at writing a bio for myself, and IMDb apparently knows this. They've rejected every bio I have tried to write. I'm not going to give up though. I may have to find someone to help me write this darn thing. I'm still deciding what photos to put up there as well. Thank
I chose to use the word uprising, as too often it seems as though the media paints Blacks and other minorities as rioters and looters, while when White people react to...a World Series win, they are sports fans. I feel like I've written about this issue of police brutality before. Oh that's right...I have. I know that people seem to be having a hard time understanding the citizens "destroying their city," but in their minds, they are taking their city back. They are claiming
Stereotypes, regardless of the nature of their intent, can be devastating for those expected to not only live up to them, but embody and epitomize them. In Stacey J. Lee’s Unraveling the “Model Minority” Stereotype, she explores how a certain stereotype affects Asian American youth. She conducted an ethnographic study at a prestige high school with a diverse Asian population and what she found was startling. In this paper, I will briefly discuss her methodology and the sch
Right now I am fortunate to work for a company with many inspiring employees. This post, for example, was inspired by a co-worker...we'll call him...Herman Wyatt to protect his privacy. Wyatt is one of those people who is blissfully unaware of his actions and his choice of words. In some ways I'm envious, but for the most part, I am very disappointed that he doesn't understand how his words and actions come off, betray him or make him seem like he's more...ignorant than anyon
