A rare Saturday post from me… I just flipped to CNN and saw that the most interesting program will be airing this weekend. Tonight and tomorrow night at 6 and 11 p.m., CNN will be airing Daughters of Legacy, conversation and remembrances by daughters of MLK, Muhammad Ali, Malcolm X, Johnnie Cochran and Sidney Poitier. It looks absolutely fascinating, and will be hosted by the deliciously handsome Don Lemon, as if you needed further incentive to watch.
In other CNN news, Soledad O’Brien’s Black in America series will kick off with a two hour focus on Black Women and Family on on July 23rd, and two hours on The Black Man on the 24th at 9pmET/PT. And I’ve been informed that this right here is “one of the few hand-selected by CNN and anything displayed will be seen by them.” How’s about that! So bellas — this site is but one voice in a vacuum without your valuable insight and opinion. I’m going to watch and review this special, and I’d love to hear your thoughts and comments about it as well. And apparently, so would CNN!
And thanks to reader Tynisha for the tip — remember my Island Stylee post about reggae and calypso odes to Barack Obama? CNN just did the exact same story! It was pretty cool to see the Mighty Sparrow and Cocoa Tea get some screen time on the cable news network. The only person missing was new VP Records artist Tarrus Riley. The clip I shared is called the Beware Obama version. The original Beware is just as wicked, and I hope you enjoy it on this summer afternoon!
