Do yourself a favor by getting a big spoon to dig into this episode.  King CeeLo Green communicates on a higher level throughout this entire episode and in the end, you will be better than you were at the beginning.  Welcome to a deeper way of thinking about us as black people.  Please come and pick up what he is putting down.

Remember those trucks that use to ride through our neighborhoods spraying "pesticides"- turns out Big Momma was right.  It wasn't pesticides the government was spraying it was cancer-causing chemicals and black bodies were the test subjects.  This episode discusses what happened in a St Louis community and how the government used us as test subjects AGAIN.  The government has admitted its actions here yet neither compensation nor reparation has been introduced. Listen to actor and film-maker, Damien D Smith, discuss his new documentary Target St Louis Volume 1 and the horrible things they did to us. Follow Damien and learn more about his film on their website (https://4910rosalie.com/) and make sure to engage with him on social media IG @4910rosalieprod.

Sharing information and teaching is what we do here at While Black.  Because of that, we are excited to introduce you to a new podcast that will expose you to an important story you probably don't know anything about.  Welcome to Unfinished: Deep South. Read below for a description and listen to this episode for the trailer. The 1954 lynching of Isadore Banks is one of the nation’s oldest unsolved civil rights cases. Unfinished: Deep South is a new podcast opening the case back up to find answers to this fading mystery — and help us come to terms with the unresolved legacy of racism we’re still living with.

Hey While Black - This special episode is actually an episode of the Mothers Quest Podcast featuring me (Vince) as a guest.  Julie and I discussed the importance of allyship and partnership as we try to create a world that is better for us as black people. I'm sharing this because its a conversation that you will understand and honestly one that many of you have had recently as new people enter black spaces to learn from our perspective. I hope you enjoy and benefit from it.  Lastly, Julie at Mothers Quest does a great job of delving into topics that you may find both interesting and beneficial. Plus a slightly different perspective can be a good thing when it's delivered with care.  I recommend that you visit her site and take a listen.

The courtroom is a powerful place and the impact it has on us is broad and far reaching, but how much do we know about the players that participate.  The judge, the prosecutor, the defense all have an impact on the outcome.  Knowledge is power, yet most of us sit pretty uninformed about the reality behind the roles. Today you are made powerful by the information that our guest, Fulton Country (GA) Judge candidate Shermela Williams, lays out for you.  THIS IS ONE OF OUR MOST IMPORTANT EPISODES! You cannot truly improve the system or improve the system if you do not understand the system.

When was the last time you did a upside down seated handstand inside of a flipped over burning car?   When was the last time you free jumped off of a 40 foot tall building? When was the last time you set yourself on fire....ON PURPOSE! Exactly - Me either! But for today's guest, Ms Jazzy Ellis, that is all part of a regular day in the office. Welcome to an episode all about being a black stunt double/stunt actor.  It's full of the shit you don't think about in a regular day and Jazzy talks it all - from the danger to the workout, from the risk to the dollars, from the fun to the scary.  Jazzy is highly experienced and chances are you've seen her as you watch your favorite films from the Avengers Infinity War movies, to Luke Cage or Bad Boys For Life, and all the way to The Fast and The Furious (The last one i believe). Tune in listen up but please remember Jazzy is a trained professional and you should NOT attempt ANY of what you here today...except for the inspiration to get up and get trained on something you are passionate about.

Do you say the N-word - Do you not? Does ending it in "ER" vs "A"  make it a difference? Does hip hop create a pass for its use? Dr Corrie Claiborne takes an educational, historical, and pop culture approach to the word and she doesn't tell you how to decide but she does make sure you are informed of the history, the meaning, and the impact.  This is a super dope episode.

Corona Virus (COVID19) is getting more and more serious and we wanted to provide you with even more information and this time we are back in studio so the quality is right Dr Carmen Sultan does what super dope doctors do and she broke it down.  This is another IMPORTANT episode that we need you to share. Help yourself by helping your neighbor and your community. Let's stay safe and that starts with knowing the real. Tune in and SHARE!!!!
SHARE SHARE SHARE THIS IMPORTANT EPISODE If you have any questions or need the most up to date information please visit The Center For Disease Control and Prevention www.cdc.gov   Additional credible sources are The World Health Organization (https://www.who.int/)   Given how new COVID19 is and how fast information is changing please make sure you are using credible sources for your information. We apologize that todays episode is lower quality sound than our normal however we felt it was important enough to trade sound quality for much needed information on the Corona Virus (COVID19). As such we recorded this interview over the phone.  BTW Dr Sutton was a trooper ...no hero..bc she did this interview even though just the day before she had a potential exposure to COVID19.  So when she said lets do this over the phone instead we understood. In part 1 of this emergency session we are joined by Dr Madeline Sutton who has a long long list of credentials but served for 20 years (Until last year) as an Epidemiologist at the CDC.  Dr Sutton takes some time to break down all the most current information on COVID19.  In addition, she busts a few early myths. Again Dr Sutton was potentially exposed to COVID19 earlier this week and as such we decided to make the move to record via phone so the quality is not our normal - please forgive us but THIS IS MUST LISTEN TO INFORMATION!!!!  Lastly, in order to get this episode to you as fast as possible (overnight) limited editing was done. Enjoy, take heed, be safe, and SHARE so your brothers and sisters can also be informed

Kimonis Sadiq definitely has a wealth of opinions. it seems as though his opinions aren't driven by much fact though. With quotes from Malcolm X he attempted to heighten Trumps status by saying blacks hated him because white people said to, siting appearances on the Fresh Prince of Belair and his references in rap songs. However Sadiq neglected to reference the Central Park Five case, or his lawsuit for discriminatory practices, all the reports of his casual racism, etc... Along with a host of other reasons that make him a horrible person. With all that said and more I haven't said, I would like to warn you about the responsibility of being a consumable media and hopefully having people in your podcast that speaks truth to power, and doesn't come off sound like a black russian operative, such as the ones that infiltrated our community in 2015-16 election cycle.
