A few weeks ago, I received a new trailer for Color Outside the Lines, an engaging documentary that gives an honest voice to the history, struggles and triumphs of African-American tattoo artists. I never posted it at Shadow and Act because, well, shit happens! It goes that way sometimes; things get buried or lost and you fall a step behind in the game, but what’s important is that I have it now; and I can also say that I’ve seen an early screener of the film and nope [wags finger]…I’ll save that discussion for another day. Since then, the team behind the film, Artemus Jenkins [director] and Miya Bailey [artist | producer] have launched an official website for the film. For readers who missed my initial post on the film, check it out, HERE.

If you will allow me to digress here for a second, this film answers a question I've had for some time. Whatever happened to Rolonda Watts? Now any of you who watch soap operas will know that she was a regular on the soap Days of Our Lives for 8 years. (I don't so I did't) But I remember her for completely something else.
