A pair of testy exchanges between high-profile black women and white men in the political spotlight launched a tweetstorm under the hashtag BlackWomenAtWork, validating the experiences of thousands of professional black women who say such slights are all too common.

It began with Fox News host Bill O'Reilly ridiculing veteran congresswoman Maxine Waters, referring to her hair as \"a James Brown wig,\" after watching a video of the California Democrat criticizing President Donald Trump's policies. Later Tuesday, during a White House press briefing, American Urban Radio Network host April Ryan was admonished by press secretary Sean Spicer, who told her to \"stop shaking your head\" as he responded to her question.

After the exchanges, Black Lives Matter activist Brittany Packnett took to Twitter and urged her followers: \"Share your Maxine and April moments, so people don't think this is rare. Use #BlackWomenAtWork.\" Packnett added that black women meet at least three O'Reillys and five Spicers a day, and went on to list her own examples \u2014 including a time when she was asked about her blue nail polish at a meeting and another when a college dean discouraged her from wearing braids.

Davia Lassiter saw the hashtag and felt inspired. She said that she watched the exchange between Ryan and Spicer and saw a black woman being treated like a child, and that the O'Reilly remarks about Waters also felt familiar.

\"When he attacked her hair, we all felt that as black women,\" said Lassiter, 35. \"These women were doing their jobs, but instead of them doing their jobs, the men wanted to insult and chastise them.\"

The hashtag was a reminder that black women have long had to steel themselves against such exchanges \u2014 highlighting the challenge of balancing race and gender, said Alexis McGill Johnson, executive director of the Perception Institute, a consortium of researchers, advocates and strategists focused on bias and discrimination.

\"It helps us understand the lived experiences of black women every day,\" Johnson said. \"It's a tool, a vehicle, for us to affirm and nod and raise our hand up and say, 'Yeah, me, too,' and 'No, not today.'\"

The hashtag attracted everyday women as well as women in politics and entertainment. By Tuesday night, Waters herself had joined the conversation, tweeting: \"I am a strong black woman. I cannot be intimidated, and I'm not going anywhere.\"

Black women shared stories on Twitter of unwanted hair touching, having their ideas overlooked or taken, disrespect from subordinates, questioning of their academic credentials, accusations of being angry and criticism for wearing certain clothes drawing attention to curvier body types.

As the hashtag started trending, Packnett tweeted, \"I sadly knew it would trend. Not because I'm special. Because I know how we get treated.\"

Lassiter, a marketing executive who lives in Austell, Georgia, said navigating such incidents is \"this thing we've gotten used to putting up with.\"

\"I'm not going to say we can't win; I feel like we win every day,\" Lassiter said. \"But we have these moments where the only thing you can say is, 'Damn. I work my butt off, I have these accolades, but I still have to deal with this.\"

LOS ANGELES (AP) \u2014 PwC accountants won't be allowed to have their cellphones backstage during future Oscar telecasts.

Film academy president Cheryl Boone Isaacs sent an email to academy members Wednesday detailing the new protocols for announcing Oscar winners developed after the best-picture flub at last month's Academy Awards. Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences spokeswoman Teni Melidonian confirmed the authenticity of the email.

The academy's Board of Governors discussed its ongoing relationship with PwC, formerly known as PricewaterhouseCoopers, and established the new controls at a meeting Tuesday night. Besides banning cellphones, the academy is adding a third balloting partner to the telecast, and bringing in PwC's U.S. chairman to provide oversight.

PwC, which has handled Oscar balloting and other academy business for 83 years, has claimed responsibility for the biggest mistake in Oscar history. Balloting partner Brian Cullinan tweeted a photo of Emma Stone backstage moments before handing presenters Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway the wrong envelope for best picture. They announced \"La La Land\" as the winner, though \"Moonlight\" actually won.

Boone Isaacs blamed Cullinan's distraction for the error. PwC said that both he and partner Martha Ruiz failed to follow established protocols that night and did not act quickly enough to correct the error.

Traditionally, two PwC partners have overseen Oscar balloting and are the only two people who know the winners before they are announced live onstage. They're stationed on opposite sides of the Dolby Theatre stage, each with an identical set of winners' envelopes for the show's 24 categories.

Boone Isaacs said in her email Wednesday that a third balloting partner with knowledge of the winners will sit with the telecast director going forward. Balloting partners will also be required to participate in Oscar rehearsals, she said.

She called the 89th Academy Awards \"the most extraordinary and memorable Oscars ceremony in decades\" and said that academy officials have been working since then to develop the new protocols adopted Tuesday.

Hips will be swinging en masse downtown on Friday, March 31, as Hotel Congress hosts a celebration of cumbia music and tropical sounds in an event organizers have dubbed El Tamb\u00f3 Fest.

The two-stage to-do will feature several DJs, both local and national, as well as live bands from as far away as Oakland, California, and New York City, showcasing original material and classic covers of cumbia music, the infectious dance genre that can be found in countries throughout Latin America.

Mezcal tastings will be available for the first 500 ticket buyers. There\u2019s even a Selena cover band, Bidi Bidi Banda, from Austin, Texas, slated to perform.

Selena Quintanilla-P\u00e9rez, a mega-star known for incorporating cumbia rhythms into her music, died after being shot 22 years ago on March 31.

\u201cThe last time (Bidi Bidi Banda) played Tucson, they had a sold-out crowd,\u201d said El Tamb\u00f3 organizer Logan \u201cDirtyverbs\u201d Phillips. \u201cThey are from Texas. They have a deeper connection to Selena\u2019s legacy.\u201d

El Tamb\u00f3 Fest, (Tamb\u00f3 loosely translates to \u201cdrum\u201d in English), is an extension of Phillips\u2019 regular El Tamb\u00f3 DJ dance nights at Hotel Congress, that have taken place most Friday nights \u2014 with live band performances every three months or so \u2014 since 2013.

Phillips, who is involved in poetry and theater performance in Tucson, developed a love for cumbia in his 20s while living in Mexico City, and dabbling in DJ work.

It was a part of his life that he missed when he moved to Tucson in 2011.

\u201cThere was just no real cumbia being played downtown in venues or bars or outside of quincea\u00f1eras,\u201d Phillips said.

In 2012, after a brief stint at La Cocina, Phillips worked with Hotel Congress entertainment director David Slutes to launch El Tamb\u00f3 dance nights at the venue.

Those nights have since become a regular Friday fixture for Congress.

\u201cWe have maybe 1,500 people come through our events on any given Friday,\u201d Phillips said. \u201cEverybody who hears it is taken by it. You can dance to it using traditional steps. But it really lends itself to dancing any way that listeners feel it.\u201d

\u201cIt is only one of a handful of nights around the country like it, and has gained a reputation as a cutting-edge leader,\u201d Slutes said. \u201cIt\u2019s been extraordinarily popular and one of the things we are most proud of here at Congress.\u201d

El Tamb\u00f3 night has given a stage in Tucson to a new generation of touring bands, who have found a home playing cumbia music, Phillips said.

\u201cThere is a whole circuit of young, mostly Latino bands and musicians that are re-examining these old rhythms and bringing them into the 21st century in really interesting ways,\u201d he added.

El Tamb\u00f3 Fest will bring that center stage, Phillips said, in addition to serving as a cultural message.

\u201cPolitically, it is very important for people to come together and have a celebration,\u201d Phillips said. \u201cTo show who we are and what we have always been in the borderlands. We are a mix of cultures, sometimes in conflict, but mostly living, working and dancing in rhythm together.\u201d

PATERSON, N.J. (AP) \u2014 Two more arrests have been made in connection with a shooting involving hip-hop star Fetty Wap in his hometown.

Raheem Thomas, a hip-hop promoter who initially was arrested on aggravated assault and weapons charges after the shooting occurred in Paterson early Sunday, will now also face an armed robbery charge, the Passaic County prosecutor's office said Wednesday.

Thomas had a handgun and hollow-point bullets when he was arrested on the armed robbery charge, authorities said, so he's also facing weapons charges and a count of receiving stolen property. The Paterson resident is CEO and owner of Muscle Team Entertainment, a company that promotes hip-hop.

Prosecutors did not immediately specify who was robbed, what was taken or why Thomas was charged with receiving stolen property.

Thomas did not enter a plea during his brief court appearance Wednesday. His lawyer, Greyson Hannigan, said he will enter his plea during a pretrial detention hearing scheduled for next week.

Another Paterson man, Sylvester Huffin, has been charged with two counts of attempted murder and three weapons charges, prosecutors announced later Wednesday. He faces several decades in prison if convicted on all counts. He was in custody and couldn't be reached for comment, and it was unclear if he had a lawyer who could speak on his behalf. A date for his initial court appearance has not been scheduled, prosecutors said.

The shooting happened early Sunday on a street outside a Paterson deli. Police said Fetty Wap, whose real name is Willie Maxwell, and several friends had become involved in a heated altercation with another group inside the deli. Three people were wounded, but Fetty Wap wasn't injured.

A photo posted this weekend to Thomas' Instagram account showed a masked man wearing what appears to be Fetty Wap's signature \"1738\" pendant.

\"Just to set the record straight, I personally didn't take (Fetty Wap's) chain,\" Thomas posted.

Fetty Wap's crew in New Jersey is known as the Remy Boyz 1738, named for the Remy Martin 1738 brand of cognac.

Thomas in January also posted a rap song and video on YouTube that was disrespectful of Fetty Wap.

TULSA, Okla. (AP) \u2014 Part of music icon Bob Dylan's once-secret 6,000-piece archive, including thousands of hours of studio sessions, film reels and caches of unpublished lyrics, has opened in Oklahoma.

More than 1,000 pieces of the collection spanning Dylan's six-decade career are available to scholars at the Gilcrease Museum's Helmerich Center for American Research in Tulsa.

The opening comes a year after the George Kaiser Family Foundation and the University of Tulsa acquired the collection for an estimated $15 million to $20 million.

The public will get a glimpse of some of the material when the Bob Dylan Center opens in downtown Tulsa's Brady Arts District in about two years.

The center will occupy the opposite side of a building that houses a center devoted to Woody Guthrie, one of Dylan's major influences.

ST. LOUIS (AP) \u2014 Chuck Berry fans will have their chance to pay their respects to the late rock 'n' roll visionary.

Berry's family announced in a statement Wednesday that a public viewing will be held from 8 a.m. to noon April 9 at The Pageant club, where Berry frequently performed in his hometown of St. Louis. That will be followed by a service for Berry's family and friends, including those in the music industry.

The Pageant's owner and longtime Berry friend, Joe Edwards, told The Associated Press that Berry will lie in repose in an open casket, giving fans their last glimpse of the music legend.

NEW YORK (AP) \u2014 Fox News Channel legal analyst Andrew Napolitano returned to the air Wednesday, saying he stood by his claim about spying on President Donald Trump that got him benched by the network for more than a week.

Napolitano had reported on Fox that British intelligence officials had helped former President Barack Obama spy on Trump, a story that quickly attracted notice because the president cited it in a news conference. Britain denied that it had done any such thing, and Fox news anchors Shepard Smith and Bret Baier distanced the network from the report, saying its reporters had found no evidence that Trump had been under surveillance.

Fox said on March 21 that it was taking Napolitano off the air for an indefinite period. The former New Jersey judge has worked at Fox News and Fox Business Network as an analyst since 1998.

In his return Wednesday, Napolitano told anchor Bill Hemmer that he stood by his story \u2014 and Hemmer didn't mention that others at Fox had been unable to verify it.

\"You've had a few quiet days,\" Hemmer told him. \"You likely needed them.\"

Napolitano said he and his sources stand by the story, although he offered no new details.

\"The American public needs to know more about this rather than less because a lot of the government surveillance authorities will expire in the fall and there'll be a great debate about how much authority we want the government to have to surveil us,\" he said. \"And the more the American public knows about this, the more informed their and Congress' decisions will be.\"

Hemmer and Napolitano then moved on to another topic. Fox didn't explain to its viewers Wednesday why Napolitano had been off the air.

LAS VEGAS (AP) \u2014 Vin Diesel says he and the \"Fast and Furious\" crew do not want to let down the late Paul Walker with their new film.

The actor on Wednesday spoke to a packed auditorium at CinemaCon in Las Vegas about the eighth installment in the franchise, \"The Fate of the Furious\"\u2014 the first full film in the series made in the aftermath of Walker's death in 2013.

After Walker died, his two brothers helped complete action scenes in \"Furious 7,\" which earned more than $1.5 billion globally when it was released in 2015.

Diesel said Walker had always envisioned eight movies in the series and he feels like Walker is looking down on them.

\"The Fate of the Furious\" hits theaters on April 14.

LAS VEGAS (AP) \u2014 Universal Pictures is going back to its roots \u2014 monsters.

The studio on Wednesday debuted footage from its upcoming adventure film \"The Mummy,\" which opens a monster universe drawing on Universal's vault of classic properties like \"Bride of Frankenstein,\" ''Invisible Man\" and \"Creature from the Black Lagoon.\"

Tom Cruise stars in the Alex Kurtzman-directed \"The Mummy,\" which is equal parts action and horror as Cruise's explorer Nick Morton attempts to combat an ancient evil that has been unlocked and threatens to destroy the world.

Sofia Boutella is the Mummy, once an Egyptian princess who turned to the dark side when denied the throne.

Cruise, via video message, said he is proud and excited to usher in a new age of monsters.

\"The Mummy\" hits theaters June 9.

Odom tells US Weekly he hid his cocaine use from ex-wife Khloe Kardashian for a while, but she found out about two years before their 2013 split. He also says that he regrets \"having multiple affairs with different women\" while married to Kardashian.

Kardashian filed for divorce in 2013 but delayed it after the incident at the brothel. He says Kardashian helped him regain his memory following the episode. Their divorce was finalized in December.

Odom blames cocaine for helping end his NBA career. He says \"drugs killed my drive to want to train and be in shape.\"

Odom says he's sober now after finishing a rehab stint in January.
