Check out your girl this SUNDAY night on the hit Adult Swim animated series The Boondocks. Luenell will be staring as Nelly Ruckus – mother of self-hating Black man Uncle Ruckus.
Uncle Ruckus disassociates himself from other African Americans as much as possible, and is outspoken in his support of what Huey calls the “white supremacist power structure.” He is voiced by Gary Anthony Williams.
The episode “The Color Ruckus” will air on Sunday, August 8th at 11:00 pm on the Cartoon Network – CHECK LOCAL LISTINGS.
Here’s the synopsis:
If you loved “The Color Purple” and can’t get enough of “Precious” Here’s an equally powerful, emotionally gripping story of people senselessly beating on each other. Uncle Ruckus’s family comes to town and Ruckus must settle some old business with his father. It’s a tale of abuse, and triumph, and… actually no, it’s just a tale of abuse.
