Segments

1. Brown Girl Comedy: Every month the Brown Girl Comedy Show goes down in front of a packed house, so clearly there is an appetite for women of color comedians. But what are the struggles of brown girls trying to get play on stage? And how has Brooklyn been supportive of sisters trying to get a few laughs?

2. The 20th Anniversary of Crooklyn: This May marks 20 years since Crooklyn was released, and Bed-Stuy is in some ways unrecognizable. Could the things that happened in Crooklyn happen in Bed-Stuy today? How would the movie be different if filmed this year?

3. “Tell em why you mad” Roundup
