Movie Review – The Blackening

Considering everything we know about horror movies, the one thing that Black people know for sure is that the Black character usually gets killed first. However, who dies first when all the characters in the movie are Black? This comedic thriller is about a group of friends that rent a cabin in the woods to […]

Movie Review – Judas and the Black Messiah

Woohoo! It’s been a while Peeps, and I was happy to mask up and visit my local theatre to see one of my favorite genres: biopics. While the Black Panther Party was an official national political party, this biopic sheds light on one of many stories about the Party within its Chicago headquarters. I am […]


Pandemic got you stressed? Self-Care Strategy

Our very own ‘RunPeep’ DanaSimone has released her second book: the Female Masterpiece Gratitude Journal.

Movie Review – The Photograph

This is a really cute date night movie. Read more…

Movie Review – Just Mercy

This isn’t just another twisted racist movie about white cops harassing and arresting black folks. No, this one has a little different spin to this true story, and well presented, I might add. Since we all may be too familiar with movies about poor “race relations,” I will keep this review brief to avoid spoilers. […]

Movie Review – Cats

I must admit, I was a little hesitant about seeing this movie, because the trailer was not that enticing, given the over-dramatic look of the cats’ upgraded appearance. I am a huge Cats on broadway fan — so because I’m loyal, I figured I would give it a try. If you’ve never seen the broadway […]

Movie Review – Queen & Slim

  Oops, I did it again! Yes, another cop-ish movie. I told you before that this year is all about bad cops. Queen & Slim was entertaining. This movie is a spin off of the Bonnie and Clyde story, but with a little twist of soul, and a flame to the Black Lives Matter movement […]

Movie Review – 21 Bridges

Wow! If you are considering a life as a police officer, this year’s line up of movies do not make it an easy choice. You know how we are used to seeing “chick flicks” that male bash? Well, this year is all about calling out the pig in our men and women in blue. You […]

Movie Review – Harriet

As many of you know, I am a fan of biopics. I said to myself, “Self, is Hollywood going to mess this story up?” But, surprisingly, they didn’t let me down. Harriet is a must-see for sure. Given that many people may not know the full story about Harriet Tubman, this movie does a good […]

Movie Review – Black and Blue

This movie pokes at your value system quite a bit. Most of us are all too familiar with stories about dirty cops. This story is no different, but how it plays out onscreen is rather appealing because of Tyrese Gibson, Naomie Harris, Mike Colter, and of course, the city of Katrina recovering in New Orleans. […]
