The Cipher Show and ‘ting

So, I’m hoping you’ve signed up for my monthly-ish newsletter (which I’ll send over the weekend) and or keep up with me on social media because it’s been crazy-hard as of late to blog on a daily, even weekly basis.

I won the gold in the master’s 141 lb. weight class! Here, I’m pictured with my fellow sister-mommy-boxers, Nisa Rodriguez, her son …

“Fresh Dressed” Like a Million Bucks

My husband Sacha Jenkins, director of the documentary, Fresh Dressed—out this Friday the 26th—sat down yesterday morning with the legendary Dapper Dan, for an interview with Elvis Mitchell. Now, everyone who listens to my podcast or has engaged me in at least two minutes of convo over the last several months knows I’m like the Pope of the church of …

I’m Hooked on “DOPE,” and I’m Not Sorry

On this extra special podcast mash-up, #TeamAboutRace sat down with Dana Stevens of Slate’s Spoiler Special to discuss Dope, the new drama-comedy from writer and director Rick Famuyiwa. Spoiler number one: we loved it! Like, really, really, loved it. Listen to us get all nostalgic and shit, below. (PS: Please listen to it AFTER you’ve seen the movie).

NEWISH Episodes of About Race

Below are links to the episodes I have not posted! For other formats and links galore, please visit our site. Shalom. PS: If you …
