Behind The Screen | Macy's Celebrates Black History Month

Wednesday, February 17, 2016

Black History Month honors the achievements and contribution that African Americans have made through entertainment, arts, sports and sciences. This weekend, I got the chance to celebrate Black History Month with Macy's, inside the Aventura Mall. Actors Jurnee Smollett-Bell and Taye Diggs along with Illustrator Shane Evans were there to discussed the people that influenced them and the impact they have on the African American culture.

Local 10, Neki Mohan served as the MC, also in attendance were Taylor the Chef, The Black Doll Affair and Ankara Miami with a sneak peek of  what we can expect from this year's African Fashion Week.

Jurnee Smollett-Bell was influenced by her parents, who were civil rights activist and worked closely with Angela Davis. So, being an activist is in her blood. The "Eve's Bayou" star treated brought a sneak peek of her new TV mini-series "Underground," produced by John Legend.

Taye Diggs and his childhood friend Shane Evans were there promoting their book "Chocolate Me." While Diggs read an excerpt from the book, Evans provided the sultry sound with his voice and guitar.  The two also have another book titled "Mixed Me."
