Are You "Black" or "African American?"

Throughout American history people of the African Diaspora have been called so many things...all the things...but what does it truly mean, and how does it impact or affect the way we see ourselves. Evelyn from The Internets and Azie Dungey discuss on this week's episode of Say It Loud.

Is This Ratchet Or Runway?

What makes a fashion trend go from lowbrow to high class? How does the person wearing the style change its perception? And whose taste gets to be respected? Hang on to your boxer braids for this one, from the ghetto to ghetto fabulous and everything in between we're dissecting fashion through an African American lens.

How Do You Define Black Pride?

What does it mean to love being black and is there room for Black Pride today? Azie Dungey and Evelyn from the Internets discuss James Brown, Black Girl Magic, and Black identity on this first episode of Say It Loud.

She Isn't African Enough?! DNA Ancestry Tests

Ancestry and DNA testing is one of the fastest growing consumer markets. Over 26 million people have access to their DNA profiles, but understanding these profiles is complicated -- especially if you're a descendant of enslaved people. To highlight it’s complexity, Azie (who has taken over 5 DNA tests) explains her results with help from Dr. Joe Hanson of It's Okay to be Smart.

What Missy Elliott Did for Afrofuturism

Missy Elliott and her frequent collaborators have produced over two decades of music videos that we are going to attempt to justify as Afrofuturistic work. Grab your inflatable trash bags, as we take a stroll down memory lane.

The Reason #BlackTwitter Exists (And Is Totally Awesome)

From seemingly choreographed takedowns to hilarious commentary on culture and current events, Black Twitter continues to be a source of endless debate, research, and of course endless cackles. In this episode, we deep dive into how Black Twitter exists on the platform and the unspoken (but somehow still agreed upon) rules of engagement.

"Black Sounding" Names and Their Surprising History

What's in a name? Sometimes it's just our imagination, and other times it's an attempt at a political statement. Black names have been satirized and stereotyped for a long time, but they have a unique and downright surprising history. Azie and Evelyn discuss the history, culture, and influence on "black sounding names."

The Evolution of (Black) Beauty

Our perception and definition of beauty has morphed over time, so instead of trying to define everything we focused on three areas of the beauty industry: haircare, skincare, and makeup -- to show you just how far the industry has come. From Overton's high-brown face powder to Rihanna's Fenty Beauty, here's how African American beauty standards have evolved.

Is "Old Town Road" by Lil Nas X Real Country Music?

It’s often been said that music is a universal language. So why was “Old Town Road” by Lil Nas X initially removed from the country Billboard charts? Hallease and Evelyn use this hit record to talk about the business of music and how it has historically affected Black artists’ ability to “crossover”, stay true to their musical tastes, or experiment with the art form.

The OG Black Republicans

Did Republicans lead the charge in electing Black politicians? We don’t need to know who you’re voting for but we are interested in how the end of the Civil War meant the start of Black people in US Government and the resilience required by these OG Black politicians to occupy space in a government that was very divided on whether owning people was bad.

Tip

Brought to you by Black Public Media, featuring a diverse array of Black perspectives, check out this tongue in cheek exploration of a long-held stereotype. Do black people tip any less than others? How did this perception take hold of the popular consciousness, and what are the consequences of this vein of thinking?

Go to Therapy

Presented by Black Public Media this episode asks, does the archetype of a stoic quietly suffering people hold for black folk? Are black folk more likely to associate a stigma with therapy and other forms of psychological self-exploration, or is that yet another myth with many holes?

Travel

Presented by Black Public Media this episode explores the assertion that black folk don’t engage in travel tourism as much as others. Is this just another case of “it depends what you mean by travel”? And as always are there socio-economic, or cultural at work here?
