"The greatest demonstration for freedom ..."
Today, in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, I feel it is only fitting that we spend part of our day remembering the selfless work for racial equality that Dr. King devoted his entire life to by watching his historic I Have A Dream speech. Each year, on MLK Jr. Day, I like to post video of his I Have A Dream Speech so that we all have access to his powerful and inspiring words. Of course, this speech is readily available and easily accessible any day of the year but it seem right to pay tribute to the memory of Dr. King by watching video of his speech today. If you cannot watch the video above, maybe you can spend some time reading the words of the I Have A Dream speech below. More »
An open, social forum on race, and the lessons we learn early on
Today at 9AM MTV is going to try something different. I’ll be the first to say that there’s plenty of criticism to be offered up to the network. But shows like True Life and even The Real World are evidence of the fact that MTV has always tried to incorporate culturally significant conversations into its entertainment. In celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. day, MTV will, for the first time ever, be shown in black-and-white all day (or, until 9PM) as a part of #TheTalk—a program set up to spark dialogue about race and the lessons we are all taught from an early age. Kendrick Lamar, Pete Wentz, Rick Ross, Penn Badgley, Big Sean, Common, Jordin Sparks, and other celebrities will be joining in. Click inside to learn more!

PITNB's Weekly Discussion Forum
Hannibal. True Detective. Mad Men. Love and Hip-Hop New York. Real Housewives… wait. Okay, I know. There is a lot of crap on television, which makes it incredibly difficult to suggest that what’s happening on television is better than what’s happening on the big screen. However, there’s also some pretty epic epicness going down, and—aside from the amazing plots and compelling characters—there’s also far more diversity. Today I posted an article about the show Empire on Fox, and I’d seen earlier that Jussie Smollett (the actor playing Jamal Lyon) came out in an interview and said that people should be looking to TV, and not the movies, for more diversity. Things are changing, and this is indeed the golden age of television. So does that mean a good TV show is now on par with (or better than) a good movie? Click inside for more!

The TV Guide
Lots to update today … last night, at long last — after many, many years of waiting — I finally got to see Vanessa Williams live in concert. I’ve been a fan of Vanessa since the early 90s and have always wanted to see her in concert. Because I’m staying in Anaheim, CA this weekend for the Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend at Disneyland, I have a room here for the weekend. So after I ran the Star Wars 5K in the morning, I had to drive north all the way into the valley to see Vanessa in concert at California State University Northridge. THEN I had to drive all the way back down to Anaheim so that I could run the Star Wars 10K this morning. So busy but so fun. More »
Prue and Piper hit the road
Charmed co-stars and real life BFFs Shannen Doherty and Holly Marie Combs have a new TV show on Great American Country TV called Off The Map with Shannen and Holly that is described by them as Anthony Bourdain‘s travel show meets Thelma and Louise. Sounds pretty damn fun to me. Shannen and Holly sat down with Access Hollywood to promote the show and if you watch the video embedded above, you’ll get a really good feel for what the show is about and hear a bit about all of the fun the BFFs got up to on their adventure together. Head over to GACTV HERE to find out when Off The Map with Shannen and Holly airs on your cable provider and set those DVRs! This is the first time that Prue and Piper Halliwell have been on TV together since their days on Charmed :)
2 Chainz FTW!
Nancy Grace invited rapper 2 Chainz to appear on her HLN show Nancy Grace to debate the merits of marijuana legalization and, as you might have guessed, their showdown was wholly entertaining. Grace, who I have a hard time stomaching, kept pinning her argument against the legalization of marijuana on the story of a woman who forced her child to smoke a joint. 2 Chainz reasonably countered Grace‘s argument with, you know, common sense. I’m not sure if you ever wondered what it would be like to see a media clown like Nancy Grace debate a rapper like 2 Chainz about anything but just in case, you can see for yourself by watching the video embedded above.
