A Preview & Sunday's Afronerd Radio Broadcast: Mid Week Show Topix Cont., Snooki vs Toni at Rutgers U, The Passing of Dr. Manning Marable & More!
The concept of "time" never falters does it? One would have thought that 2011 just arrived and yet we're closing in toward the middle of the year already! Nevertheless, one could make the same argument about Afronerd Radio-we continue and never falter either! So let's get into the ensuing news/preview and topics for today's discussion. As it pertains to the preview, we were fortunate enough to schedule an interview with new author, Rhonda Patterson (a corporate attorney by trade) who is the ex-fiance of NY Jets cornerback, Antonio Cromartie. We decided to pursue Ms. Patterson as a guest due to a number of listener requests and thusly your wish is our command! Ms. Patterson's memoir, Love, Intercepted: A Tale of Football, Falling and Failing in Love, is not intended to be a bashfest against Cromartie, but (according to Patterson) is a cautionary tale for women who seek love in the world of high profile celebrities and athletes. Start your engines and mark your calendars for a special Wednesday (4.06.2011) 9pm Afronerd Radio airing.....AGAIN...not the show to miss!
OK. now to more pressing matters-stop by tonight at 7pm eastern and tune in to Captain Kirk and Dburt discuss these interesting and impending issues: a continuation of last Wednesday's Mid Week in Review discussion (i.e. tech/medicine/science predictions for 2100, Ivy league bound teenager pistol whips her mother over a car loan, AZ ethnic studies ban), the passing of noted educator and intellectual on African American Studies, Dr. Manning Marable days before the release of a controversial biography of El Hajj Malik el Shabazz entitled, Malcolm X: A Life of Reinvention; and if it's possible, there's more controversy brewing due to Rutgers University hosting both Pulitzer Prize winning scribe, Toni Morrrison and reality star, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi as scheduled speakers and paying Polizzi more; ten American industries that are faltering and that may never return and lastly a video that critiques the choices that Black women make as it relates to sexual behavior...whew! If you haven't guessed, this will be a special two hour broadcast so get your fruits and vegetables (no popcorn folks, this is an Afronerd show) and call us up live at 646-915-9620 or contact us via email/IM at firstname.lastname@example.org.
