About The New Negroes with Baron Vaughn & Open Mike Eagle

Now Streaming
Described by Comedy Central as "a socially aware stand-up and music series," the primary mission of "The New Negroes" is to showcase a collection of new and established comedians and musicians. It's the brainchild of actor/comic Baron Vaughn and rapper Open Mike Eagle, who took inspiration for the series and title from the Harlem Renaissance, a time when black people shared their lives and affirmed their various identities to dismantle outdated assumptions and beliefs. Each episode includes stand-up performances from three different comedians and ends with an original music video featuring Eagle and a guest recording artist, with some guest-actor appearances.
