SSNPod #235 | “Black Lightning” is UPN Reparations! (feat. Carolyn & LaTria) | #sayhowyoufeel

Once something of an overlooked stepchild among the pantheon of DC Comics characters, Jefferson Pierce, aka Black Lightning, is now the main character in the latest hit CW superhero show. In this episode, the SSN Crew – joined by their SuperFriends, Carolyn from The C-Dubb Show and LaTria – explore the history of the Black Lightning character from his creation by Tony Isabella in 1977 to the addition of his superpowered daughters, Thunder and Lightning. We also do non-spoiler and spoiler reviews of the first episode of Salim & Mara Brock Akil’s “Black Lightning” TV show, starring Cress Williams, Nefessa Williams, and China Ann McClain.

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!
