Blige/Angela Bassett project which centers on the relationship between Betty Shabazz and Coretta Scott King called Parallel Lives; there's Abducted: The Carlina White Story, which stars Aunjanue Ellis, Keke Palmer, and Sherri Shepherd; and also there was Taraji P. Henson In Taken From Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story last year; and now this one: another original movie titled A Narrow Bridge, starring Toni Braxton.
