Black & Yellow
Acting While Black
While Hollywood is making great strides towards more diversity and inclusion on screen, back in the Hair & Make Up trailers on many sets, there are not always cosmetologists who are skilled at doing Black hair & makeup. The pressures of building a career in Hollywood are immense. Why do black actors also have to worry about possibly looking a hot mess on screen? In this episode, Alana & Jack get real about #actingwhileblack.

Black Male Relationship Experts?
On today’s episode, I am talking to a Culture Writer about the rise of Black Male Relationship ‘Experts’, and the How-To-Find-A- Good-Man Industrial Complex. Who are these harmful, cishet men who doling out chauvanistic relationship advice to Black Women? Where did the trend of the Black Male Relationship Expert originate, and why does it persist? How can we protect ourselves from these men? These questions will be answered and so many more.

Black Women’s Digital Resistance TRANSFORMED!
On today’s episode, I am talking to Black Feminist Icon and Author, Dr. Moya Bailey. Dr. Bailey coined the term misogynoir in 2010, and since then the term has gone viral. She has an awesome new book out that she’s here to talk about, as well as how the term has taken on a life of it’s own and what that feels like, how people think they know Black women but they have no idea, and what the future holds for misogynoir.Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is:Coral Oral- Black Owned toothbrush and oral care company https://coraloral.com/Cadence (@keepyourcadence)- Refillable, Earth- Friendly capsules for all of your travel and self-care essentials https://keepyourcadence.com/Keep Up With Dr. Moya Bailey:Twitter: @moyazbIG: @transformisogynoirWebsite: https://www.moyabailey.com/Buy the book here: https://www.amazon.com/Misogynoir-Transformed-Digital-Resistance-Intersections/dp/1479865109/ref=tmm_hrd_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1636609185&sr=8-1***Check out The Nap Ministry Here***: https://thenapministry.wordpress.com/ IG: @thenapministry Find us on Social Media:@blackandyellowpodcastAlana J.

Lets Get Minimal
Let’s Get MinimalMinimalism is a design, lifestyle, and aesthetic trend that is gripping the Nation. Forced to live with and deal with our stuff while the World was in Lockdown, people are making intentional decisions about how much stuff they need and want to live with. Mainstream Minimalism imagery can be stark, rigid , and White Washed (both literally and figuratively) leading some to wonder If Minimalism is for Black People? Can we carve out a space that feels like it belongs to us in the White Washed world of Minimalism? On today’s episode, I am sitting down with the Afrominimalist to discuss the answers to these questions as well as talk about her new book, The Afrominimalist’s Guide To Living With Less.Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is:Crowns & Hops- (@crownsandhops)- Black Owned Craft Beer Brand & Brewery https://crownsandhops.com/Chunks (@chunks.shop)- Asian Owned color hair clip and barrette brand https://chunks.shop/Keep Up With The Afrominimalist Website: https://www.afrominimalist.com/IG: @afrominimalist Twitter: @christineaplattFacebook: https://www.facebook.com/christine.p.patrick.1Buy The Book: https://www.loyaltybookstores.com/book/9781982168049Live With Less: https://www.afrominimalist.com/live-with-lessFind us on Social Media:@blackandyellowpodcastAlana J.

Classic: Dear White American Theater
Broadway has been rocked, and not in the Queen musical kind of way. This Summer, Broadway BIPOC performers, writers, directors, and technicians banded together and wrote a letter to Broadway calling for change in an effort to make Broadway a more inclusive and actively anti-racist place for all employees. That letter began with the powerful words “Dear White American Theatre.” In this episode, we talk to a culture critic all about how Broadway is dealing with this letter, changes he has seen, and what the future holds for The Great White Way (no pun intended).Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is:Alana- Melanin Moments (@melanin_moments_)- wrapping paper featuring people of Color with a philanthropic twist (melaninmoments.com)Jac- Asian Veggies (@asian_veggies)- delicious, nutritious Asian veggies delivered to your door (asian-veggies.com)Keep Up With Jose Solis:Twitter: @josesolismayenListen to Token Theatre Friends Podcast:https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/token-theatre-friends/id1516665246https://www.americantheatre.org/2020/10/07/jose-solis-the-critic-as-cheerleader-and-critics-lab-leader/Find us on Instagram: @blackandyellowpodcastAlana J.
