OWS Goes Global (But Occupy the Hood?); Black Celebs That Some Want to "Disown" ; Dburt at NY Comic Con & MLK Memorial-Afronerd Radio @7pm ET!
Hey true Afronerd believers! Stop by this evening at 7pm eastern at afronerdradio.com to get your weekly dose of irreverence, information and urban alternative music. As an aside, our apologies for the failed Toure' interview, however we're shooting for a tentative rescheduling on October 26th. The topics up for discussion are: it appears that the Occupy Wall Street (OWS) phenomenon is a real movement that has gone global (i.e. Paris, London, Rome, Hong Kong, Taipei, etc); and speaking of OWS, are people of color galvanizing under the Occupy the Hood mantra? and should they?; a Madame Noire blog posting puts forward a proposition entitled, Famous Black people We'd Like to Disown If We Could; Dburt pays a visit to the 2011 New York Comic Con...twice; the country appears to be raising Cain....Herman Cain, that is and lastly, the MLK memorial ceremony starts today....finally! Call us live with your questions, protestations (or detractions) at-646-915-9620 or via email/instant firstname.lastname@example.org.
