Harriet Tubman


This morning’s UPFRONT is all about #BlackGirlMagic. It features Black and Blue star Naomie Harris, producer and writer Cas Sigers-Beedles and Harriet director Kasi Lemmons. 


Focus Features has released the official trailer for Harriet and I am so freakin’ excited about this movie. Cynthia Erivo is poetry in motion and I know she is going to bring all of that Broadway flair to the big screen as the unstoppable Harriet Tubman. 

Based on the thrilling and inspirational life of an iconic American freedom fighter, Harriet tells the extraordinary tale of Tubman’s escape from slavery and transformation into one of America’s greatest heroes. Her courage, ingenuity, and tenacity freed hundreds of slaves and changed the course of history.


This week's edition of #UPFRONT Inside Atlanta's Entertainment Industry is going to be an exciting one.

Saahara Glaude, stage manager of the Orlando Jazz Festival is in the studio to give us all the DEETS on this year's inaugural festival which is taking place March 9-11 in beautiful Orlando, Florida. Artists scheduled to appear include Maysa, Boney James, Kirk Whalum, Norman Brown, David Sanborn, Ken Ford, Najee and many more.
