Apologies for all the audio issues in this episode, lots of fun things began happening to the equipment but the show went on, albeit delayed. Sterling and Kortney review the Hamilton Mixtape track by track to discuss the highs and low (but mostly highs) of this brilliant companion piece to the original Broadway music. Leslie Jones brings the Black History Fact by way of a recent (1/21/17) SNL editorial and Sterling's coworker brings a question to #IndoobiansAsk which reminds us all of who isn't considered a "real man" in our society.
Also, the host survived another trip around the sun! Woot!

We can agree that 2016 may have been a rough year for us all. But for all those low points we endured, there has been some equally high points as well. Sterling, Kortney and Stephanie take a look at a few of the greater, happier moments in the past year of Black Excellence from the world's stage to personal achievements and a good chunk of everything in between. Instead of a regular yearly rundown, we choose to celebrate only the positive moments, movements and memories of 2016.
Editors note: There were quite a few people we forgot to acknowledge that had an impact on us all personally, but we want to give a huge shout out to BGN creator Jamie Broadnax! Please check out and support Universal Fan Con on Kickstarter!
