A few weeks ago, New York's New Voices in Black Cinema Festival presented a special screening of Theodore Witcher's 1997 cult classic film love jones, where Witcher and co-star Lisa Nicole Carson attended and gave insights into the making of the film. Beyond the pleasure of seeing the movie back on the big screen 15 years later, what was truly evident was the impact it had on a generation of moviegoers who would continue to crave black romance films afterwards.

A few weeks ago, New York's New Voices in Black Cinema Festival presented a special screening of Theodore Witcher's 1997 cult classic film love jones, where Witcher and co-star Lisa Nicole Carson attended and gave insights into the making of the film.
