Weekly Round Up: Awards and TV Premieres

Entertainment Weekly selects Cosmos: A Space Time Odyssey as one of their must see TV debuts of the season! Why are they so excited?  “Tyson is as entertaining as he is brainy and jaw dropping visuals make you forget that you are actually learning while you are watching TV. Cosmos should have a place in science classrooms for years to come.”


Congratulations to one of our newest speakers Shola Lynch, her recent film Free Angela has won the NAACP Image Award for Excellence in the theatrical documentary category!


Head over to HUB magazine where political cartoonist Steve Brodner sits down to discuss the role of caricature in our political discourse.


In an interview with the Seattle Times, Charles Johnson explains why we need characters like Emery Jones Boy Science Wonder. “The Johnsons hope their book will show children of color that there are others who have been bullied and prevailed and that being talented and smart is a wonderful thing.”


Finally, be sure to check out the new ABC series Resurrection, based on the latest book by author and speaker Jason Mott!


See you Friday for our weekly video!
