Baby when I say I will be front and CENTER
So tired of these movies like this…grant it it’s educating us about our past as black people…but geesh how many movie are going to be put out like this?? We need more movies like “Hidden Figures” a showing us in a more positive light.
I love this show!
I’ve been a fan of Jurnee since Eve’s Bayou, I mean homegirl held her own against giants in that movie! Every role she gives her all, like The Great Debators. She has Viola Davis type skill, but they never give her enough. So happy she has material now where she can show herself.
