UPFRONT featuring Aleshia Cowser, Barry Jenkins, KiKi Layne and cast of 'Hustle in Brooklyn' (AUDIO)
Happy Saturday Everyone!
Check out last weekend's editon of UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry. It features the beautiful ladies from BET's new docuseries Hustle in Brooklyn - Eva Evans, Ivy Rivera and Azia.
I also talked to Oscar winner Barry Jenkins and actress KiKi Layne about their new film https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQXSforT_qQ">If Beale Street Could Talk. Both were in Georgia for the fabulous SCAD Savannah Film Festival.
And closing out the show was my one-on-one with filmmaker Aleshia Cowser. Her new film https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tTdY7Qu_4U">BRICKED addresses Bipolar Disorder and mental health in the African American community and stars TV vet T.C. Carson.
The show is also dedicated to the memory of jazz trumpeter https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJNN-YmaJ8I">Roy Hargrove. #RIP
