Ep 122 The State of Black Activism: This week's episode of Real Black News features the top five empowering Black News stories of the week and this week’s guest: Black Puerto Rican Activist, soon-to-be PhD, and associate producer of the two-time Oscar-winning film Judas and the Black Messiah, Rosa Clemente (starts 24:16). She returns to the podcast to talk about the journey to making the movie and how her co-sign and connection to Fred Hampton’s family was the key to the film finally getting made. Rosa also discusses attempts to erase Afro-Latinos, calling out Latina actresses in Hollywood, activist PTSD, why parents should “racially socialize” their children, and her thoughts on the drama surrounding Black Lives Matter and its leaders. Other topics include the Young Black Panther Party, Gambia’s cure for the blind, Black entrepreneurs who house and hire the formerly incarcerated, and more of the top five empowering Black news stories of the week. #RealBlackNews
