Women’s History Month is winding down but the stars of Underground are still celebrating it. On the show this season, actress Aisha Hinds plays Harriet Tubman, the iconic woman who brought hundreds of slaves to freedom. Aisha talked about playing the role and other cast members share their favorite women of history. Check it out […]

BET’s new show scripted show about a fictional Black college, The Quad, has generated some positive reviews. But its storylines that include a shady band director, a strip club-owning alumnus, a college president with secrets and issues of her own have angered others. Hampton University’s president, William R. Harvey had several issues with the show […]

Say it isn’t so. Two of our favorite shows Queen Sugar and Insecure on HBO have now come to and end. That’s the bad news. The good news is that they are both coming back for second seasons and in the case of Queen Sugar, they are shooting three more episodes for Season 2. And […]

Love is never easy. And in this week’s Queen Sugar we are heading to the home stretch, with only one episode left. These Bordelons – over the course of the season, they have earned a place in our hearts from the first moving episode through to #12, “Far Too Long.” It’s likely because each character […]

It is with teary eyes that I must remind you that the first season of Queen Sugar is coming to an end. This is only good news if you are just now catching up, or if you haven’t watched at all yet, because that means you can just binge-watch the whole season at your leisure. […]

NEW YORK – The sisters of Queen Sugar look like the women you already know. Rutina Wesley, who plays Nova Bordelon, looks like a pretty Barbie in person, all fine features, slim figure and gorgeous skin. Dawn Lyen Gardner who plays Charley Bordelon West, is lighter-skinned with broader features. They are dressed much like their characters would be […]

Even though these episodes of Queen Sugar were likely written last year, the themes are timeless. That’s evident in this tenth episode of the show, “So Far.” The episode covers a lot of ground, but like much of Queen Sugar it does so in moving and nuanced ways. Reporter Nova (Rutina Wesley) is going to […]

 And we’re back. We’re now recapping a show, Queen Sugar, you all seem to like, if you have OWN, which is still and issue. (Note to Oprah: Please give us cable cutters a standalone app option, or for those who still have cable, a less expensive cable tier for your network. Thanks.) So we’re already […]

Alright, Power fans. We’re at the end of our road, at least for Season 3.  And so are many of the characters. This season, three major players were killed off and one’s still missing in action. Here’s what went down on the season finale “In My Best Interests.” This season has seen power change hands multiple […]

We are at the penultimate episode of Season 3 of Power. For those without an SAT vocabulary, that means next to last, as in there’s only one more episode until we have to wait an entire year for the next one. Sigh. Stakes is high for several characters as we wind down this season, no […]

People, there are only two episodes of Power left this season. Thank God for the return of the fall TV shows, otherwise I don’t know what I’d do. Unfortunately, though, it seems like everyone on Power is making some irrevocable choices that will lead to significant consequences that they aren’t going to be able to […]

We’re more than halfway through the third season of Power and things are heating up in this week’s episode “The Right Decision.’ In fact, hard decisions must be made and Tommy (Joseph Sikora) and Ghost (Omari Hardwick) reunited, must make them. The first is taking out Lobos (Enrique Murciano) who has become their common enemy. […]
