Hidden Figures had a big opening weekend. There are no words to express how happy this makes me. The fact that this film made money has power.

The cast of Hidden Figures received the Best Ensemble Award at the Palm Springs Film Festival last night. The film opens everywhere Friday. We’ve been yelling at you for months to make plans to go see this movie. In August, I geeked out over the debut trailer’s blatant celebration of black girl brilliance Full Story

The wage gap is real. It exists in every industry, at every level of industry, but in the film industry the wage gap isn’t just a product of gender/racial bias, it’s also the result of a scaled compensation system that rewards stars more than anyone else.

I look forward to seeing Taraji P Henson on a carpet. I was really, really looking forward to seeing her on this carpet. I thought for sure she’d be a contender for best dressed. And then she showed up, in the most boring yellow dress ever, and it seemed like she opted out. Full Story

If you've been watching the Olympics, you know how much the past 10 days have been an epic display of #BlackGirlMagic.
