On Thursday President Barack Obama will join Anderson Cooper for a live one-hour town hall meeting on gun control. The event, titled "Guns in America," will coincide with the fifth anniversary of the shooting of former Arizona State Representative Gabby G

President Obama will tackle issues surrounding gun control in our country during a televised town hall-style meeting on Thursday. The event, “Guns in America,” is being hosted by CNN and will air a day before the fifth anniversary of the shooting that left Arizona Rep. Gabby Giffords in critical condition. During the program, President Obama is slated to talk about the negative impact that gun violence has had on our country and will take questions from attendees. There have been talks that the president is planning to take executive actions that would strengthen background checks. The executive order, which might possibly be put in place sometime this month, is expected to be strongly opposed by Republican representatives. “We have a pattern now of mass shootings in this country that has no parallel anywhere else in the world,” said President Obama following the mass shooting that took place in San Bernardino. “Guns in America” is slated to air on Thursday at 8:30 p.m. EST on CNN.

Fresh off the movie Creed, director Ryan Coogler is on to his next venture. Coogler was enlisted to direct Marvel’s Black Panther movie. Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed that he would be coming on board in a recent interview. Feige also shared that the cast will primarily be African-American. “This one is important … Not only do you get an unbelievable lead character, but you also get all of Wakanda which is a whole new setting and culture to explore … The movie is a big geopolitical action adventure that focuses on the family and royal struggle of T’Challa in Wakanda and what it means to be a king,” said Feige. Coogler, who is 29-years-old, is best known for his work on Fruitvale Station. Black Panther is slated to be released July 6, 2018. Read more.

Beyoncé to Write and Star in Film about Saartjie Baartman

Beyoncé is always challenging herself. After solidifying a top spot in the music industry, she’s now looking to make her mark in the realm of film. According to reports, Bey will pen and star in a biopic based on the life of Saartjie Baartman; a South African woman who was forced to participate in “freak shows” during the 1800s because of her curves. Baartman is symbolic to the exploitation and abuse of African-American women’s physiques. Even after her death, Baartman’s body was still put on display at the Musée de l’Homme in Paris. Her remains stayed on display until feminists fought to have them removed from the museum and buried. “Beyonce is desperate to be taken seriously as an actress. Even though she’s had a string of well-received movies, she still feels her breakthrough role is yet to come,” said a source. “She now wants to write a screenplay that gains her respect — and hopefully awards — from the film industry, and thinks Saartjie’s story could be her ticket.” Read more.
