Whether scribbled in history books for some good, great, or awesomely bad reasons, 2019 brought with it some of modern Pop culture’s most memorable moments.

Now, as the year draws to a close, TGJ is reflecting on moments that rocked – and to some degree maybe even shaped – the Urban and Pop cultural landscape as we know it.

Next, we’ll look back on the TV shows that announced their cancellations:


Check out Lupita Nyong’o!

The Oscar winning actress stuns a-front of the February 2020 issue of British Vogue. 

Striking as ever, the spread comes on the heels of an action-packed year for the star – who earned critical acclaim for her performance in Jordan Peele’s ‘Us.’

It also arrives as she gears up for the debut of passion-project ‘Americanah’ – her TV adaptation of Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s book of the same name.

Set to stream exclusively on HBO Max, the series – which Nyong’o leads – tells a transatlantic love story, while also exploring themes of emigration, race, feminism, and family, and family

‘Love & Hip Hop:  Miami’ returns for its third season on January 6th – and it’ll be bringing back a familiar face. Because, the speculation has been confirmed – Joseline Hernandez has officially joined the cast.

Since its arrival, the newest addition to the VH1 reality franchise has delivered drama and ratings in equal measure.

Anchored by Trina & Trick Daddy, the show’s third outing will not only bring with it Joseline’s debut (after her initial stint on the Atlanta series), it’ll also see the return of Amara La Negra, Bobby Lytes, Shay Johnson, Jojo, and a slew of newcomers.

The Real Housewives Of Atlanta is back and blazing for its 12th season. And despite over a decade on-air, the Bravo smash is losing none of its scorching steam.

Already delivering on its promise of shady twists and turns, the latest instalment of the ensemble title is proving a must-see.

Want to know what Nene, Kandi, Porsha Cynthia, Eva and the returning Kenya will be serving up on episode 10 / season 12?

Michael B. Jordan continues to prove himself one of Hollywood’s most versatile talents.

The star top-lines Warner Bros‘ gripping drama ‘Just Mercy’ – which has delivered solid results during its limited holiday debut.

Powerful, pensive, and thought-provoking, the true story tells the tale of attorney Bryan Stevenson (Jordan) and his groundbreaking battle for justice.

A Harvard graduate, Stevenson had a buffet table of job opportunities awaiting his picking. However, he instead heads to Alabama to help the falsely accused pursue their vindication.

During his quest, he encounters Walter McMillian (played by Foxx), who had been sentenced to death for the  murder of a teen girl. This despite the existence of ample evidence in support of his innocence.

Together they strive to overturn the judgement.

Call it a Christmas miracle for Kenya Moore. 

Viewers of the ‘Real Housewives Of Atlanta’ will be well-versed in the complicated relationship the first black Miss USA has with her mother. Largely because there is no relationship.

Indeed, Moore has been candid about the fact that her mom – who had her in her teens – has never spoken to her.

However, it appears the star’s own journey into motherhood has been served as a long-awaited bridge.
