Drop It Like It’s Hot

Hey everyone, thanks for another great week of conversation.  As you may already know, thanks to polerin the links are working again.  I am eternally grateful for all of the help.

This week Monica of TransGriot, Gus AKA Allison McCarthy and I will be chatting with Kola Boof.  We will discuss what it was like growing up growing up “nappy headed” and half Black in Northern Sudan.  We will also be speaking about  rape and slavery, which are still occurring there at a very high rate.  Please be sure to tune in at 8pm EST.  Here is a link so that you can follow the show.  For those of you that miss it, I will put up a link on Sunday, so that you may hear the recording. As always the phone lines will be open should you have any questions. (347) 326-9452  If you are to shy to call in, feel free to ask your question in the chat room and we will ask Ms.Boof.
