Meet Jamie Broadnax


Creator and Founder of BGN

Happy New Year! Thank you for your continued support of this online community and helping BGN begin its third year!  I started this blog started in Feb of 2012 when I decided to Google the term "Black Girl Nerds" and nothing came up in the world's largest search engine.  Now BGN is a blog, a social network, a podcast and a growing online community that helps Black women and women of color embrace their eccentricities and feel empowered to identify as geeks and/or nerds.

We are launching the a newsletter in the new year to keep you posted on special events, blog posts you may have missed, and podcast annoucements!  In the past I've usually facilitated this through Twitter, but since everyone does not use the platform, it makes sense to allow users and fans to subscribe to a newsletter to stay informed! Here's to an awesome 2015!

Join us Sunday Jan 4th for our first #BGNPodcast of the year! Our guests are the children cast members of the hit ABC sitcom black-ish! Join us as we chat with Marcus Scribner, Yara Shahidi, Miles Brown, and Marsai Martin! 

The show airs LIVE at 7pm EST/ 4pm PST on www.twib.fm/live!
Be sure to download and subscribe to The Twibularity app which you can access from your Android or iPhone!

#80sLiveTweet Series

Join Candice Frederick @reeltalker and Kimberly Renee @reelsistas as we kick off the new year with a bi-weekly 80's live tweet series!  Every other Saturday at 7pm EST/ 4pm PST. Our FIRST live tweet is Saturday Jan 10th! We have selected Ferris Bueller's Day Off (1986).  Join us with the team over at Geek Girl Pals for this exciting live-tweet event! 

The official hashtag is: #80sLiveTweet

Starting tomorrow Friday January 2nd-- BGN is giving away issue #1 of Snow Daze to three lucky winners! The one week giveaway ends Friday Jan 9th! These are trade paperback copies of the comic so the winner will be contacted via email and asked to submit their mailing address to where they would like to have the book shipped.

Entries open to U.S. residents only
