Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey

Ok, so check it… I am NOT your chick-flick, Hallmark, Lifetime movie-lover. I also HATE Christmas movies (I make exceptions for The Preacher’s Wife with Whitney and This Christmas). And even though I do like a good musical every now and again, I wasn’t aware that Jingle Jangle would have singing and dancing, so I went into the movie with no expectations. I figured it couldn’t be too bad with a stellar cast that included Phylicia Rashad, Forest Whitaker, Anika Noni Rose, and Keegan-Michael Key. Thirty minutes in I was…

Stacey Abrams Took The Bag and Ran With It

John Lewis knew Black equity couldn’t be obtained without the power to vote. Something so precious must be important, right? Or else why would white folks continue to try to take it away?

Lovecraft Country – Rewind 1921 (S1E9)

Rewind 1921

The pieces of the puzzle are coming together and the full picture is almost in view! I cannot believe we only have one more episode of this show left. I am not okay. Somebody check on me week-after-next. Pointing Fingers The episode begins with the group bickering about whose fault it is that Dee has fallen under a curse. Ruby snaps them out of it by placing the blame at all of THEIR feet, never mind she was the one was actually supposed to be babysitting Dee. Tic decides he…
