KarmaJonez Attends FX Screening of “ATLANTA”: My Review

atlanta

A few years ago, I moved to Atlanta, GA. At the time, I was stuck in Washington, D.C., unsure of my next move, and tired of the same old same. Rent was too damn high, and the money wasn’t coming in fast enough. Like many young, Black people with a dollar and a dream, I viewed Atlanta as the Mecca-a place I could go to fulfill my dreams. And for me, it turned out that was true.That was back in 2013.

In his most recent film, Miles Ahead, Cheadle takes on legendary jazz musician, Miles Davis. And something tells me, this may be some of his best work yet.

Why Chris Rock Shouldn’t Boycott the Oscars

Another awards season, another lily white Oscars, and more awards for people who kinda deserve them. And just like we all were expecting the Oscars to be as pale as the Brady Bunch, we were also expecting Black people to have something to say about it.
