Friends for decades, these two women teamed up to direct a movie about the lives of Black women

Meagan Good and Tamara Bass met as teen actors at an audition in Hollywood more than 20 years ago, and they soon became fast friends. And even as the years passed and their fortunes in film and television diverged, their friendship held strong. Good, 39, has done steady work in movies such as “Think Like A Man,” “Anchorman 2,” and “Shazam,” as well as on TV.

What’s at stake for Karen Bass could go beyond election

Rep. Karen Bass looks to defend the seat in Congress she has held for the past 10 years representing parts of Los Angeles against Republican opponent Errol Webber. Webber does not have any substantial fundraising effort or formal campaign to speak of, so the contest will likely not be much of a challenge for the 66-year-old Democrat in a predominantly left-leaning district. But there could be something bigger looming for the Congresswoman whose career this year catapulted into national promise. ...
