SPARKLE coming out August 17th is a remake of the 1976 film inspired by The Supremes about three sisters that form a girl group that ultimately become a Motown sensation. I remember watching the first version of the movie my freshman year in college and it has been a favorite of mine ever since. I can’t wait to see what changes they made to the original movie. The trailer looks great and I can’t wait to see Jordan Sparks in her first major acting role alongside Whitney Houston, Mike Epps, Derek Luke, and more!
Pam Grier a classic!
I’ve always had the utmost respect for Samuel L. Jackson. He’s definitely one of the realest and most influential black men in the industry today! His words are so powerful, "Blame anyone but yourself for not being strong enough to put down the gun. To break the cycle!“
The unfortunate events that happened to Tryvon Martin are deeper than race. As black people living in a world controlled by white men we have to educate ourselves. We have to understand the barriers society has put on us but we can’t continue to blame society. We have to look at ourselves and want/demand more. Our words will never be heard if we continue to settle and become complacent. We can not let others dictate the success we will achieve throughout our lives. Instead, we must stand together and support each other. Encourage our black people; support their businesses and endeavors instead of becoming jealous hatters. Respect and love each other! If we can’t support ourselves not other man will!
