#BlackGirlMagic is taking over the covers of several magazines next month. Take a look at the gorgeous faces of Amandla Stenberg, Teyonah Parris, Yara Shahidi and Taraji P. Henson covering the February issues of Teen Vogue, Essence and Elle.
The The African-American Film Critics Association has published their list of award winners for 2015 and, to no one’s surprise, Straight Outta Compton took the top honor as best movie. Will Smith nabbed Best Actor for his buzzed about performance (he’s considered a lock for an Oscar nomination) for Concussion. Teyonah Parris got Best Actress for Chi-Raq but she has about the same amount of Oscar buzz as I do, which is sadly none.
The AAFCA will hold its seventh annual awards on Wednesday, Feb. 10, 2016. The ceremony will also celebrate the 25th anniversary of Boyz N the Hood and New Jack City with an all-star tribute and concert celebrating the genre of Hip-Hop cinema.
