Our Picks + Crooklyn

Tuesday 1 March 2022, by Abla Kandalaft, Akua Gyamfi, Coco Green

We’re back!! We took a couple of months’ break for me to get over the chaos of the first few weeks of having a newborn (my second - still chaotic!).

We’re delighted to have Akua Gyamfi join us this week to discuss her work and her top picks. Akua is the founder of The British Blacklist . She’s also the creator of the TBB Talks & Your Aunties Could Never Podcasts, as well as co-creator of The Circle Podcast & Web series.

Akua’s top picks include the Prince Of Bel-Air reboot and the film she chose to discuss is Spike Lee’s Crooklyn. We discuss the tone of the film, the depiction of familial relationships and female characters, the fate of daughter Troy, Black cultural output in the US and the UK, the prevalence of Black American popular culture. We also share anecdotes about MC Hammer and get schooled about what the Bay Area is!

Here’s a useful link to Tonetalks, which is relevant to our discussion.
