Like most, I binge-watched the first season of Orange is the New Black over a few days last summer.

As I fell down the Netflix rabbit hole of ... Read More

"Royals" gets an overhaul by three women of color actresses--Tess Paras, Haneefah Wood and Ayana Hampton--who use the song to comment on typecasting and representation in Hollywood.

In a funny but disturbingly true rendition, we are all reminded that gender and race ... Read More
