Kevin Hart Starring in TV Special to Teach His Daughter and Others About Black History

Brian To / WENN


If Hidden Figures has reminded us of anything, it's that black people have made significant contributions to American history, and it's often swept under the rug. 


Sure, we learn about the important Civil Rights Movement and those leaders that worked towards the cause, Harriet Tubman, and other well known figures (all of whom are important, do not get me wrong!). But each year around Black History Month, those same leaders and figures are highlighted all the time through media, in school presentations, and the like. So we have a slanted view of all of the contributions that black people have made.

Kevin Hart is seeking to change that by starring in an upcoming TV special on black history! The special, Kevin Hart Presents: The Black Man’s Guide to History, will feature more hidden black figures that have made major impacts to society.

Rapper J. Cole, whose album, 4 Your Eyez Only, recently went gold, dropped a new track, "High For Hours," out of nowhere that sounds like it could've fit on the album also!


#MondayMotivation

Good morning everyone...it's another Monday and most everyone is off today for the holiday. Still wanted to drop some #MondayMotivation to get you through the rest of the week!


In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,  today's quote comes from him. Whatever you do, keep moving forward. No matter how long it takes, no matter the small steps you have to take to continue pressing towards your goals, KEEP. MOVING. FORWARD.

That Controversial Episode of 'Urban Myths' With Joseph Fiennes as Michael Jackson Has Been Pulled

Sky Arts


That hot mess of an episode of Urban Myths starring
Joseph Fiennes as the late Michael Jackson has officially been PULLED!


The network Sky Arts planned to air a controversial episode of the series about some story that Michael took a random road trip with Elizabeth Taylor and Marlon Brando after 9/11 from NYC to LA. Besides the fact that that's just a bizarre story anyway, the major issue is that Joseph, a white man, was playing someone who was African-American!

After uproar from not only the Jackson family but also the public, Sky Arts made the decision to pull the episode, which was set to air on January 19.

Throwback Jam of the Week: "Love Don't Cost a Thing"-Jennifer Lopez


It's Throwback Thursday, and we're back with another great jam from back in the day!



Let's go back to the early 2000s with this hit from Jennifer Lopez — "Love Don't Cost a Thing!" From the late 90s and 2000s especially, Jenny from the block brought the hits. All this mess with Drake aside, she's still doing her thing in music (AND acting AND producing, et cetera, et cetera), and still looks amazing! This song was always my jam, and it popped up randomly on shuffle the other day. So I wanted to feature it this week!

Watch the video below!

RECAP: "Getting Nekkid"-'Being Mary Jane' Season 4 Premiere

BET

Being Mary Jane is back for a new season, and Mary Jane is is a new city, with a new job, and a new attitude! And, of course, I'm recapping it all!


It's been a little over a year since the season 3 finale, and Mary Jane has moved on from SNC to a correspondent position at Great Day USA in New York City! Though she should really be focused on the new job, MJ goes to see a matchmaker, Felicia Beatty, to try to find love.  A few DAYS into being in the city, y'all. Even Felicia can read her well, and tells Mary Jane to do self-reflecting and wait a few months before trying to find a guy. But does MJ listen?
