Febrauary Awarness

  As February ends, I’ll be remiss not to bring attention the issues that plague our community. Like mental health, HIV, heart disease.

She's Gotta Have It Recap

Netflix has remade the original film by Spike Lee ‘She’s Gotta Have It’. It’s highly suggested that anytime production companies remake films to watch the original.
