“Queen Sugar,” Ava DuVernay’s drama series for OWN, is not a show afraid to tackle traditionally unexplored subject matter. In this episode, the SSN Crew discusses how episode 5 of the second season of “Queen Sugar” deals with gender identity in the Black community. In addition, we discuss the (questionable) 2017 Emmy nominations, all of the awesomeness from Disney’s D23 expo (especially “The Incredibles 2”) the brief but bright career of Motown artist Tammi Terrell, get ready for “Game of Thrones” season 7, Whoopi Goldberg wanting Disney to reissue “Song of the South,” and – of course – that (amazing!) Entertainment Weekly “Black Panther” preview!

Join Brandon, John, Kareem, Ken, and Jamison as we discuss, dissect, and try to make sense of the past, present, and future in film, television, music, animation, race relations in media - and on occasion comics and tech - while trying to remain sane. If you’re tired of hearing the same (*ahem*) monochromatic take on modern media, we’re the podcast for you!
