Another Round, Episode 40: Blacker History Month

We present some Little Known Black History Facts, clap back on behalf of Zora Neale Hurston, and Marlon Wayans stops by for a rapid-fire Q&A that Tracy's mom should probably skip.

Hi Drake. How do you feel about the fact that it's Tuesday?

We're pumped too, because that means there's a new episode of Another Round!

This week, we kick off Black History Month with some Little Known Black History Facts, based on Tracy's tumblr of the same name.

To all of those who are wondering why there's not a White History Month: we asked friend-of-the-show Matt Bellassai to come by to teach us about some "White History Heroes."

Warning: Listening to this segment may be harmful to your health.

Just heard @MattBellassai and his list of "white history month heroes" on @anotherround and died laughing. I'm dead.

"Connor Caucasianson" I'm going to die @anotherround.

@anotherround @heavenrants @brokeymcpoverty I just DIED listening to @MattBellassai honorary list. Thank you, it was everything! 😂😂😂

Heben claps back on behalf of Zora Neale Hurston, who was looked over by her intellectual peers during her lifetime.

Perennial Classics

It was only after author Alice Walker found Hurston's unmarked grave and wrote an article called "In Search of Zora Neale Hurston" for a 1975 issue of Ms. magazine that Hurston's work began to regain steam in the public eye.

Ships at a distance have every man's wish on board. For some they come in with the tide. For others they sail forever on the horizon, never out of sight, never landing until the Watcher turns his eyes away in resignation, his dreams mocked to death by Time. That is the life of men. Now, women forget all those things they don't want to remember, and remember everything they don't want to forget. The dream is the truth. Then they act and do things accordingly.

And Marlon Wayans stops by to chat about the differences between the original Fifty Shades of Grey, and his version, Fifty Shades of Black.

Open Road Films

"I wasn't turned on [by the original]...what if Christian Grey was black, rich...and a really bad lover? Just like the guy in the [original], but ten times worse."

Here are some random things we learned about Marlon Wayans.


* His favorite UPN show is Homeboys In Outer Space. (Malcolm & Eddie is a close second.)

* He maintains that if you're a man in a relationship with a woman, you only get to fart in front of her one time.

* He does not believe in ghosts.

* His skin care regimen includes Dermalogica, Neutrogena, drinking lots of water, eating lots of vegetables and vitamins, and frequent exercise.

* Contrary to what TV and movies would have you believe, no man he knows has ever jerked off into a sock.

50 Shades of Black hits theaters Friday, Jan. 29, nationwide.

Tracy bought a round for Donny Hathaway.

Heben bought a round for braids: "It's so beautiful, all the things that our hair can do. Our hair slays."

Here are 5 more random things you can look forward to hearing in this episode:

1. "Like all white people, I profess to be an expert in everything."

2. "[He was] the first person to wear camouflage with the intention of being seen."

3. "How can any deny themselves the pleasure of my company? It's beyond me." - Zora Neale Hurston

4. "500 years ago, there was a little black girl sitting between her mothers legs, getting her hair braided, complaining, and saying 'I'm tender-headed.'"

5. "If my mom is a squirter, I want to know."
