Mr. Robinson isn’t a show for everyone, which is largely a function of the fact that Welcome Back, Kotter wasn’t for everyone, and owed a lot of the success it had to limited alternatives.

Don’t get me wrong, Welcome Back, Kotter was not only a great show, but it managed a surprising amount of influence on the landscape of television for decades… it just wasn’t for everyone.

14 July 2015 2:59 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Jaden Smith brought his own unique sense of style to prom! After sporting a Batman costume to another school's celebration earlier this year, Will Smith's son attended another one over the weekend -- wearing a white skirt for the soiree.

Smith, who has been spotted wearing "girls clothes" from TopShop in the past, wore a suit jacket, black tunic and white skirt to the event, sporting black skinny jeans and sneakers underneath. He also wore a white and gold glove on »

Pimpin’ Black Butterflies Lost - Ch. 1 of 3 - Using Films to Shatter the Media's Funhouse Mirrors That Distort Black Teen Self-Reflection

4 May 2015 8:32 AM, PDT | ShadowAndAct | See recent ShadowAndAct news »

This series is a short introduction into the inspiration of why filmmaker I believe black teen films like After Prom need to exist. Amandla Stenberg asked America, “What if we loved Black people as much as Black Culture”. The other perspective to that question is, “What if Black people loved themselves as much as the World love’s their culture.” Who Am I? How do I define who I am, and by what measures? And if so, who controls the measure by which I am defined? What is the motivation of those who have defined me? Racism is partial motivation but racism alone is not an end in itself but rather a tool for larger agendas. Black people do not have a monopoly on racism; in fact, we are one of »
