Today D. Mills (https://twitter.com/mdmills79) and I talk with Dr. Tommy Curry (https://twitter.com/drtjc) on the need for black male studies in academia and the media. Dr. Curry has also been in the news recently for a controversy he’s been embroiled in thanks to a witch hunt started by conservative white supremacist Rod Dreher. We also go into whether such a thing as Black Patriarchy exists in the black community or if it’s a myth,
