This Week’s Topic (s):

This Sunday (1/23/11), we meet two dynamic 30 somethings, recap the King Parade and spend some time talking tech and gadgets.

But first we meet Angela Parker who is a freelance writer who currently lives in Los Angeles, California. She is the author of Tethered and writes “Under the Hill”, a column that takes an irreverent look at life as a thirty-something singleton. You can read more from her at  and visit her website at Be sure and click “Older Posts” to read more of her writings!

Nate Parker, PAFF HOST

Darlene Donloe has as her guest Nate Parker.  We will NOT have open phones but one day we must invite him back so you too can talk with him. I am expecting great things from the man who personified his role in Great Debaters in real life and also starred in the Secret Life of Bees and many other important works.

This is a brief video which Nate Parker was referring to.  It does not include his own DNA reveal but he is pictured within. It was shot and edited by Leroy Hamilton.

We will also play clips from this past Monday’s King Day Festivities in Leimert Park

Here is the visual file.  We will play the audio file.

Note: What would it cost the LAPD to calm unarmed people down, wait a bit, to assess why a person is acting the way they are? Yes, this is a week old. I missed it.

Dr. King reportedly told her, “The world sees us as we should be seen. As intelligent, beautiful, and qualified just like anybody else. You have the first non-stereotypical role on TV. You cannot leave.”  Great video at the link.

SOME OF US ARE BRAVE: Aired an hour long interview with the newly freed Scott Sisters.

After Darlene Donloe‘s interview with a favored actor Nate Parker, who played in the Great Debaters, she filed a complete report.  She has got the skinny  on the rumor that Halle Berry will be playing Aretha, and a whole lot more!


Got the email about the new traffic fines?  It’s kinda sorta true:

That’s the show we filed for Jan 23, 2010, the 12th edition of Sunday Morning Live.
