In the 1970s, a few movies featuring black families did a good job of tackling the dynamics of family love, romantic love, social issues, the desire for fame and fortune, and the struggle of being black in a society that has spent centuries trying to leave us behind. One of our favorite movies, Sparkle, is a great example of one of those movies. Join the crew of Fandom City as we discuss this cult classic and the fantastic music that wasn’t used for the soundtrack album.

Oh my! That hiatus was way longer than expected. After an interesting and chaotic… long, long time…, Fandom City Podcasts are back. We’re kicking things off with a Town Hall Meeting to discuss 2020. Normally we’d chat about movies, TV shows, and entertainment, and we will get back to that. However, 2020 has been one hell of a year. It only makes sense to talk about it and talk it out. Join the discussion as Tea, Leona, Kat, and Chele get together to talk about some of the events of 2020.
