Perhaps the funniest and most entertaining episode thus far, this week's StayWoke Show is a CANNOT miss! 

I've been wanting to bring this week's guest, Brigitte "Doctor" Burpo on for a long time! We previously worked on a local radio program here in Birmingham. Now she joins the Real Negus for a global initiative! You'll see why she was archetype for cohosting duties for my show. Her witty, snazzy retorts and bold approach to life proves she takes a backseat to no one.

This week we discuss BlackLives Matter and Bernie Sanders, Ray Rice and Domestic Violence, Relationships, Dating, the healing Bishop Bullwinkle brought me, and SO MUCH MORE!

When the son of a well-known activist is killed in a small South Carolina town it becomes an epic struggle of religion, self dettermination, and non-violent resistance vs retribution. Originally written in 2008, "The Situation In South Carolina" foreshadowed Trayvon Martin, Ferguson, Baltimore, and even Charlestont


Once month we will release more of the audio version of "The Situation in South Carolina."
