Est. MMXIII

Justice League Passes

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes-Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash-it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Dear Young Black Pittsburgh

GSKY5160Dear Young Black Pittsburgh,

This letter is short, sweet and straight to the point.  It’s not filled with attractive anecdotes, but my truth as a Pittsburgh native.

Life MIGHT hand you shut off notices, rejection letters, government assistance and other tangible evidence of insurmountable failures.

These setbacks can also come in the form of friends, family, and foes…

Black Pittsburgh is supposed to be “inclusive” and, instead, even the smallest difference promotes exclusion.  Money and power reigns over servitude and generosity.

Some people will be intimidated by your strength and find ways to emasculate your talents.  The compare and contrast is a sign of their weakness to keep you from sitting at a table you were never meant to break bread on.

There are imposters amongst you that are NOT meant for the good of advancement and community. These wolves, in their rightful clothing, want the spotlight and not the sacrifice. They want awards and accolades, not ambition. They want quick finessing and not quality fixing.

But, don’t worry.  You will be okay!

The only advice I have for you is to rip up this letter, and any other letter that does not have a physical charge. There is work to be done. Actions speak louder than words and I am here to serve BESIDE you.

Trust in God and remain unapologetic in your journey!  In the words of my Pastor Brian James Edmonds, YOU ARE ENOUGH!

Much Love,

Merecedes J. Howze

Step Passes

STEP is the true-life story of a girls’ high-school step team set against the background of the heart of Baltimore. These young women learn to laugh, love and thrive – on and off the stage – even when the world seems to work against them. Empowered by their teachers, teammates, counselors, coaches and families, they chase their ultimate dreams: to win a step championship and to be accepted into college.

This all female school is reshaping the futures of its students’ lives by making it their goal to have every member of their senior class accepted to and graduate from college, many of whom will be the first in their family to do so. Deeply insightful and emotionally inspiring, STEP embodies the true meaning of sisterhood through a story of courageous young women worth cheering for.

The screening will be held on Tuesday, August 8th at 7:30 PM at AMC Waterfront 22.  For tickets, please comment below with your favorite dance/step movie.  MSQ’s Favorite: Stomp The Yard (2007)

All Pittsburgh Black women need a ‘Girls Trip’

NEW ORLEANS, LA – JUNE 30: Hand fans featuring the cast of the movie Girls Trip are seen during the Essence Music Festival at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center on June 30, 2017 in New Orleans, Louisiana. (Photo by Jonathan Bachman/Getty Images for Universal)

Starring Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett-Smith, Regina Hall, and Tiffany Haddish, the Flossy Posse head to New Orleans for the Essence Festival after a five-year hiatus. Tension and drinks fly as the women try to enjoy their trip and rekindle their sisterhood.

Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett-Smith were already a part of a bad girls group in 1996’s “Set It Off,” which they reference in the film. The best buds reunite after 21 years and manage to gain two new besties. “Girls Trip” reminds us that, regardless of turmoil or disagreements, Black women have an unbreakable bond amongst their closest friends.

This movie is an uplifting, tear-jerking ball of entertainment. On screen, the women mesh so well and create a friendly reminder of what it is like to hang with your girls. Regina Hall is mild-mannered and gorgeous. Queen Latifah is representing for all of the big girls with a tasteful, flaunting wardrobe. Jada Pinkett-Smith puts all other 45-year-olds to shame with her impeccable physique.

But, the newest actress to Hollywood stole the show. Tiffany Haddish is raunchy, cross-the-line funny, and simply effervescent. I couldn’t imagine any other leading actress playing that role. She nailed it.
