UPFRONT featuring Angela Bassett and the cast of House Party: Jacob Latimore, Tosin Cole, D.C. Young Fly and Rotimi

upfront SIRIUS XM 011423 2.jpg

Check out this week's edition of UPFRONT/Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry.

We're catching up with Oscar-nominated film star and acting legend Angela Bassett as she talks about playing “Queen Ramonda” in the blockbuster movie Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. She’s here to give us a breakdown of the scene I believe earned her Golden Globe win this week for “Best Supporting Actress in a Motion Picture.” This conversation is part of an AAFCA Roundtable Discussion.

Acclaimed documentarian Phill Branch is back to discuss his new passion project, Hampton University: One of the Wonders of the World. The indie film puts a much deserved spotlight on the illustrious HBCU and its iconic former president Dr. William R. Harvey.

And finally, we're talking to the cast of the new House Party reboot – Jacob Latimore, Tosin Cole, D.C. Young Fly and Rotimi. They’re all here to talk about their characters and much more.

We’ll also be playing new music from Maysa and Lakecia Benjamin featuring Dianne Reeves.

UPFRONT/Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry is presented in part by the High Museum of Art and the Deana Lawson Exhibition.

The show is produced and hosted by Ray Cornelius for WCLK 91.9. It also re-airs on SiriusXM on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday at 6:30 pm on HBCU Channel 142.
