The stats are in around the effects of the pandemic on Black businesses and the vaccination rates for Black folks and - they’re not good... surprise! We talk the adorable Sylvie's Love a romantic film set in the 50s starring Tessa Thompson and some other hotties. We talk the trash awards that is the Golden Globes which had some groundbreaking winners this year and it’s shocking how in 2021 how groundbreaking they were. Plus we chat about Golden Globe winner Minari! Spaking of Golden Glob winners Andra Day who marvelously played Billie Holiday in The United States vs. Billie Holiday, leads us into an exploration and celebration of our queer Queen Billie Holiday, diving into her story, facts left out of the movie, and highlighting how her story is both the genesis of the Civil Rights Movement and the War on Drugs, the power of Strange Fruit, her legacy, her tenacity, in the face of adversity and trauma at the intersection of Black History Month and Women's History Month. Also, have you ever wondered why Black History Month is in February? Or why Women’s Month is in March? Well, Sam’s got the answers and how they came to be. Plus Sam and James thirst for hotties.
