We’re hosting a special show for MLK Day Weekend. Ernie Suggs, a columnist with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution will be our guest. We’ll be talking about AJC’s MLK Day coverage AND a new feature documentary he produced and wrote for AJC, “The South Got Something to Say,” celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Hip Hop, but with a little Southern Flavor. We’ll also review this Sunday’s Atlanta Journal Constitution. It’s our second #AJCReadalong with Ernie. Neil Parekh will be the guest host.

We will be live at 8:30am ET on Sunday morning on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, our Digimentors website AND now, Instagram. If you miss the live show, you can always watch it later, on demand.

"The South Got Something To Say," chronicles the rise of Atlanta hip-hop and its journey To dominance.

At the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Ernie helps to curate Unapologetically ATL, a weekly newsletter that explores the stories, trends and events shaping Black culture in Atlanta, aka A-Town, Black Mecca, Wakanda, Black Hollywood or simply The A.


This follows two other #NYTReadalong episodes that focused on the 50th Anniversary of Hip Hop. In August, we interviewed Adrienne Green and focused on a NYT Magazine special edition focused on the 50th Anniversary and in December, we interviewed Walter Greason and Tim Fielder, featuring their graphic novel, "The Graphic History of Hip Hop."

Regular viewers will know that we usually feature The New York Times; the show's official name is Sree's Sunday #NYTReadalong. Occasionally, we focus on other publications. We have previously hosted shows highlighting The Philadelphia Inquirer, the Chicago Sun-Times, The Washington Post, The Globe and Mail (Toronto), Politico, The Dallas Morning News and the Khaleej Times (Dubai).


 

We have been reviewing the print edition of the Sunday New York Times for eight years. Click here for our YouTube Playlist.


The show is produced by Digimentors. We produce high-quality virtual and hybrid events for organizations big and small around the world. We also do social and digital consulting, training and workshops.


Neil Parekh is the executive producer and occasional guest host. If you're interested in having our team work with you, or are looking for sponsorship opportunities, please contact us through our website.
