In the early year’s of OWN’s creation, talks about the network going bankrupt was a headline on many entertainment sites but now its original programming is a regular trending topic on social media across the country.

#SOTD: Jidenna-‘A Bull’s Tale’

With a boastful, cocky ego and fashion sense from 2056, Jidenna has easily earned his spot as one of my Top 20 music artists. “A Bull’s Tale” is one of my favorite tracks off of his debut album The Chief.

We Need to Stop Vilifying Kevin from “Moonlight”

If you have a heart and can feel, most likely you left Barry Jenkins’s Moonlight, a brilliant film about exploring the intersections of Blackness and queerness, with tears in your eyes. I cried at the heartbreaking ending, the beautiful way Jenkins wrote the characters’ resolution. But it has come to my attention that there are some people who walked out […]

2017 Oscar Predictions

Just recently, the Academy Awards nominations for 2017 were announced – predictably, Damien Chazelle’s La La Land being the frontrunner. But the Academy made some pretty impressive choices. Barry Jenkins’ Moonlight wasn’t far behind La La Land, with 8 nominations to La La Land‘s 14. Hamilton star Lin-Manuel Miranda may become one of the first men of color to be an […]
