Description

The Nod tells the stories of Black life that don’t get told anywhere else, from an explanation of how purple drink became associated with Black culture to the story of how an interracial drag troupe traveled the nation in the 1940s. We celebrate the genius, the innovation, and the resilience that is so particular to being Black -- in America, and around the world.

So the story was captivating but I had a hard time discerning how much was story and how much was produced for the episode. I felt that her sisters identity was tied to a external fluid sense of self worth like if someone else valued black identity then it was good, but if someone else came along, well it was a problem. I was with Simone, the ish was offensive to hear but I respect her right to feel the way she feels. I just want be trying to let someone I'm affiliated with hook up with her because it's whack.

Is Madea good for the blacks? I believe that Tyler Perry is going to kill off Madea soon. Is this good? I love the Madea series. What do you think?

KalaLea fought for herself. A wonderful example of what each of us must do, know our own bodies! Do research and get to work.
