There’s always more to a story than meets the eye, so you never know when the plot twist is coming. While the Internet was in an uproar after images of a little black boy modeling “Coolest Monkey in the Jungle” hoodie (dis)graced the H&M website, the chants of boycotts reverberated, the celebrity activism resounded, but […]

“Insecure” is perfectly flawed, perfectly messy and perfectly perfect with its realer than real take on millennials, black women, relationships stereotypes and culture all perfectly meshed together to form a show that we haven’t seen the likes of before. Sharp, witty, clever and funny AF, “Insecure” touches a spot that other shows have failed to […]

Tha Afterparty Radio is pleased to announce the latest additions to its all-star lineup. Added to the roster is “King vs. Queen,” starring KingPaul “KP” and Ladie J.

Whoa, whoa, Trick Daddy, black women don’t need your advice and divisive words. […]

Never one to shy away from controversy, actor and comedian, Chris Rock, kept it all the way black and real at this year’s Oscars. Amid the #OscarsSoWhite controversy, Chris tackled the issue head-on and hilariously in his opening monologue. He outright called Hollywood racist and explained how their racism isn’t the typical kind we’re used […]

It’s been argued that if black people really want to be seen as equal in this country, then we shouldn’t separate ourselves out. Singling ourselves out is just making it harder […]
