Good Tuesday evening!
Each night, Don’t Sleep will raise awareness surrounding issues impacting our community. On tonight’s show we will be introducing someone who will share commentary in their voice on a relevant issue facing our youth. This will allow us to give a platform to the various voices within our diverse culture.
Tonight, we welcome Issa Rae who is known and widely followed for her witty, edgy perspective. Issa Rae is the star of “The Misadventures of Akward Black Girl,” a wildly popular web series. You may know her for often using the word “ratchet” when describing her life’s soundtrack. She brings that “ratchet” perspective to tonight’s social commentary surrounding a story in Florida where members of a high school band appeared in an explicit rap video. In it, they can be seen wearing their band uniforms while dancing. The video also includes at least one porn star and several “strippers.” The school says they were misled about the video when the students were first asked to participate.
Also in tonight’s show: I promise you won’t want to miss Rev. Al Sharpton, former RNC Chair Michael Steele, and comedian Loni Love. They go at it about gay marriage, black Republicans, and the court decision over the new voter ID law in Pennsylvania.
See you soon. Don’t Sleep.
