Last night, I had the awesome opportunity to attend an open mic sponsored by the movie “Black Coffee”, which begins its limited run in AMC theatres in Washington, DC, Baltimore, Atlanta, and Chicago. The event was hosted by Panama Jackson from “Very Smart Brothas” and featured poets, singers, and musicians.
My girls and I went out and enjoyed ourselves. Attendees received free cocktails and awesome gift bags with “Black Coffee” swag. But the highlight of the evening for me was seeing (and speaking to) Lamman Rucker, who is one of the stars of the movie. (Yes, he is tall and fine and personable! :)) Plus, he will be at AMC Hoffman tonight to greet moviegoers!
And if you don’t know what the film is about, let me tell you. Robert, played by Darrin Henson, is fired from his dad’s company AND his girlfriend breaks up with him, all in the same day. But, he meets the gorgeous Morgan, played by Gabrielle Dennis, and it seems as if things are going great for them. But when you insert Robert’s ex-girlfriend and Morgan’s ex-husband who wants to reconcile, problems are sure to arise.
As someone who supports Black Cinema, I implore all of you to go see this movie. Unfortunately, it’s only in theaters for a limited run, so make sure you go see it this weekend! Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!
