Wow, wow, and wow! Three wows for Nola Darling's three lovers. I'm anxiously waiting for this new series by Spike Lee to premiere on Netflix.
"Netflix has given a 10-episode series order to “She’s Gotta Have It,” a remake of Spike Lee's 1986 debut film, Variety has confirmed. Lee will direct each half-hour installment and serves as executive producer on the project with his wife and producing partner Tonya Lewis Lee.
The series centers on Nola Darling, a Brooklyn-based artist in her late twenties struggling to define herself and divide her time amongst her Friends, her Job and her Three Lovers: The Cultured Model, Greer Childs; The Protective Investment Banker, Jamie Overstreet; and Da Original B-Boy Sneakerhead, Mars Blackmon." -- Variety, 9.15.16

If I had a son, I'd be tempted to move to Detroit, just so he could attend this phenomenal academy that trains African American boys to become disciplined, strong, and emotionally healthy men -- something we desperately need more of. Power to Sharath Jason Wilson and the other leaders at the The Cave of Adullam Transformational Training Academy. From the Academy's Youtube page:
During these perverse times, it's truly vital that we, the men and fathers of this generation, do not allow our boys to grow up with a false sense of masculinity like many of us did. As a result, we have a mass amount of emotionally unstable men walking in unresolved anger, confusion and depression, instead of power, love and discipline. So we place strong emphasis on allowing our recruits to openly express their emotions, so that we can teach them how to use those emotions to their benefit, and become a comprehensive man of God.Watch how this teacher so masterfully instructs, consoles, and encourages this student: Click here to donate to the academy!
