    • Sadly it is a sign of the times. Congrats to Beyonce on her doc because it is not a dig at her but people’s interests but her doc and the H. Katrina doc wasn’t that far off in #. I would love for Spike Lee to do an update on the H. Katrina doc though. The ladies looked lovely at the Luncheon, love the pretty brown skin day initiative, yay for Nia getting work love her and Sanya’s show.
