This week, in part one of our two-part Halloween special, Tre’vell and Jarrett talk about their childhood experiences with Halloween, what candy will get you cussed out and answer the question: Do Black people celebrate Halloween? Plus, a sneak-peak of Jarrett's chat with "Bad Hair" director Justin Simien and more!  

Is Hallalujah-ween just as satisfying as trick or treating? Will White celebs somehow find a way to do Blackface this year despite wearing a mask? Do we need to be reminded again that "we are a culture not a mask?" Spooky skeleton season and even spookier candy corn gets the FANTI treatment 

But first...

Pass the Popcorn

Tre'vell and Jarrett discuss the recent stunts of Black entertainers including Ice Cube, 50 Cent and Diddy. 

DIS/Honorable Mentions

This week, Jarrett has an honorable mention for the new Focus Features documentary The Way I See It which will make you miss the days of decorum and full sentences. He also has an honorable mention for the film Sylvie's Love which drops on Christmas. You can watch the trailer here.

Tre'vell has an honorable mention for Patrik Ian Polk who was a part of this year's BIPOC queer film cannon panel at New Fest. Learn more about it here

Another honorable mention goes out to the film Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom starring Viola Thee Davis and features the late Chadwick Boseman in his final performance. 

One last honorable mention for the wonderful Issa Rae who hosted SNL this past week!

And finally, we would like to mention the civil unrest currently going on in Nigeria and the activists and protestors currently risking their lives to end police brutality and overreach. To learn more about this subject you can read “Queer Nigerians Are Being Beaten by SARS — I'm Trying to End That” by Matthew Blaise.
