Her Death Sparked Outrage-The Movie Could Spark Change When the 28 year old Chicago woman was stopped in Texas for a traffic violation, no one imagined she would be dead three days later. Sandra Bland’s body was discovered by jail officials hanging from a noose in her cell. The official story was suicide, but many believe the public never heard the full story behind what really happened to Bland. This fall, HBO will share an inside look at Bland’s life and death in a documentary titled, “Say Her Name: The Life and Death of Sandra Bland”. Her own words spoken by her voice will be used to tell her story as HBO plans to feature video blogs Bland had recorded prior to her arrest. We’ll also get to hear from Bland’s family. “Say Her Name: The and Death of Sandra Bland” is scheduled to premiere on HBO this December.
“Living Single” The Reboot Reboot seems to be the new Hollywood “it” word. We’ve seen everything from “MacGyver” to “Hawaii Five O” triumphantly return to the small screen with plenty more shows slated to be pulled from the shelves, dusted off and re-imagined. Joining the growing list of shows rumored to be making a comeback is “Living Single”. In the 90s, Khadijah and the gang made single life a joyous time with their hit sitcom. The show starred Queen Latifah(Khadijah), Kim Fields (Regine) T.C. Carson (Kyle) (Kim Coles (Synclaire). John Henton(Overton) and Erika Alexander(Maxine) as six friends sharing their personal and professional dramas in a Brooklyn Brownstone. For five years, the show was one of the most popular series on air. According to Vibe Magazine, cast member Alexander posted a hint on Instagram Monday teasing fans while asking, “Anyone know how to “reboot” this?” she questioned while pointing to her laptop.” The article also quotes Cole who “spoke with ET about a possible project dropping next month with the cast described as “reboot-ish.” And even Latifah indicated during an interview with Andy Cohen’s on “Watch What Happens Live!” mentioned that “We’re actually working on it”. Let’s hope they get everything worked out and we all get a chance to stroll down memory lane with one of the top rated sitcoms that featured an African American cast.
