Jakes have joined in support of the Black and Missing Foundation, Inc., a nonprofit organization that raises awareness about missing people of color.

If the critics were any indication, we all knew this was coming. A Thousand Words, the new Eddie Murphy comedy ("new" insofar as the 2008-shot film hadn't yet had a theatrical release), opened this weekend to a disappointing $6.2 million at the box office.

Here I go again!. Being the obnoxious, repulsive bad boy that you love to hate,  I have to confess that when word came out that a bio-pic about Barbara Jordan was being developed with Viola Davis in the lead, I had to let out a yawn and rolled my eyes.
