Today's edition of UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry is all about #BlackBoyJoy. Joining me is the artistic director of Ailey II Troy Powell as well as New Amsterdam actor Jocko Sims and the cast of Love Jacked Shamier Anderson and Demetrius Grosse. I am also joined by the film's director Alfons Adetuye.

Ray Cornelius is one of Atlanta’s newest entertainment writers and media personalities. His arts and entertainment website, www.raycornelius.com spotlights the latest in “positive” African-American celebrity news and was established in 2012. Since that time Cornelius has covered a myriad of red carpet premieres, award shows and Atlanta-based films including Tyler Perry’s Temptation, The BronzeLens Film Festival, The Trumpet Awards, and The Steve Harvey’s Neighborhood Awards just to name a few. He has also interviewed a who’s who list of today’s top singers, actors and reality stars. With nearly 20 years of media experience, Cornelius has also worked as an associate producer for the Emmy-winning public affairs program, ATL Insider and with such award shows as The Soul Train Awards, The Trumpet Awards and BET Hip-Hop Awards.
