OK—did you die over Yara Shahidi’s hairstyle when she walked down the red carpet at this year’s SAG Awards? I died. Did you die over her “Weekend In Wakanda”-perfect bejeweled ’fro-cornrow extravaganza on Essence’s latest cover? I died. Hairstylist Nai’vasha Johnson is the one slaying the trendsetting actress’s…

As we watch the star, Storm Reid (Meg), navigate an alternate universe in search of her father, we can’t help being in awe of her guides, the Mrs. These women—played by Oprah Winfrey (Mrs. Which), Reese Witherspoon (Mrs. Whatsit) and Mindy Kaling (Mrs.…

Black America, we turned out in record-breaking numbers last weekend to see and support the most anticipated film of the year, Black Panther. It was a triumph as epic as the film itself.

Director extraordinaire Ava DuVernay dropped yet another tease from her highly anticipated girl-power romp for the 1-8, A Wrinkle in Time, which stars 14-year-old Storm Reid, who made her film debut in 12 Years a Slave.
Queen Ava DuVernay graced our timelines Sunday night with the newest trailer for her adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s book A Wrinkle in Time, and I am, as the kids would say, shooketh.
