*Publisher TidalWave has announced Sen. Kamala Harris is the latest edition to its Female Force series of biographical comic books.

“Kamala Devi Harris is only the second African-American and first Asian-American Senator from the state of California. A lawyer, prosecutor, and former attorney general, Harris has devoted herself to bettering the lives of her constituents while focusing on social issues that help minorities and women,” reads TidalWave’s announcement.

“I enjoyed working on this comic. As a public figure, Kamala Harris is a fascinating person. Her historic nomination is a natural progression of her talent as a politician. It will be fascinating to see what happens next. Love her or not, her placement on the ballot is groundbreaking,” said writer Michael Frizell.

“The Kamala Harris comic book helps readers in their connection to the main character on a personal level that the news, for its nature, set distance. Due to that, the goal of this project is to tell people details that most of them previously knew but couldn’t feel related to their lives.” said artist Juan Burgos.

“We wanted to showcase the strong women in today’s society that have inspired generations and shaped the culture of today,” said comicbook creator Darren G. Davis. “Kids and adults alike can look up to these women as great role models.  One of the coolest things about the comic books is that we found schools using them for reluctant readers.”

Previous TidalWave titles have profiled Angelina Jolie, Hillary Clinton, Sonia Sotomayor, Michelle Obama, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Condoleezza Rice and Cher.

“Female Force: Kamala Harris” will be released on October 21. Below is a preview of interior images:

*On Monday, October 19, the ladies welcome author and global health advocate Chelsea Clinton, to discuss her newly released children’s book, She Persisted in Sports. She has some strong criticism toward President Trump for putting his staff at risk following his COVID-19 diagnosis, and wonders about his ongoing obsession with her mother, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Jo Koy stops by to talk about his Netflix stand-up show In His Element and the best career advice that he received from Dave Chappelle and Cedric the Entertainer. He also explains how, due to his success after many years of grinding on the comedy circuit, he was able to buy his son an extra special gift for his 16th birthday… and an emotional Loni Love is especially moved by the story.

Then, Loni clarifies the tweet that she made about the gender of Nicki Minaj’s baby which got her in hot water across social media.

Later, the hosts welcome “artivist” Nikkolas Smith, who shares his famous art that focuses on social injustices, and talks about the impact it has had on society, and about having the Obamas as fans!

Chelsea Clinton Says Trump is Obsessed With Her Mom

Chelsea Clinton: He’s obsessed with her! I mean, he talks about her all the time!

Garcelle Beauvais: I know!

Adrienne Houghton: Literally.

Chelsea: He talks about her in interviews. He talks about her in rallies. He tweets about her! I mean I think it’s really clear that he has never gotten over the fact that she won the popular vote by more than three million votes…

Garcelle: Right.

Adrienne: That’s right.

Chelsea: And I think that he’s also really threatened by strong powerful women. You know, I don’t think it’s an accident that we saw, kind of, how he reacted to Senator Harris’ extraordinary debate performance…

Garcelle: Exactly.

Chelsea: … which, similarly, he felt quite threatened by. So, I’m not surprised. Though, I wish he’d spent more time thinking about what to do about our COVID crisis than thinking about my mom.

Lavern Cox, Lena Waithe, Elle Lorraine Discuss Their New Hulu Film ‘Bad Hair / EUR Exclusive WATCH

Published

on

Bad Hair

*“Bad Hair” is a horror-comedy written and directed by Justin Simien (“Dear White People”) making its Hulu debut on October 23.

The film is set in 1989 Los Angeles where Anna (Elle Lorraine “Insecure”) – an overlooked assistant at a music video channel- is looking to get her big break in front of the camera. Her dreams come to a screeching halt when her boss leaves the company, and new management takes over. A new executive, ex-model Zora (Vanessa Williams) steals Anna’s ideas for revamping the network, but not before telling her to change up her look if she wants to get ahead.

A trip to an exclusive salon run by mysterious stylist Virgie (Laverne Cox) leaves Anna with a “killer weave” that has a thirst for blood. Inspired by the Korean hair horror genre, the film also stars Lena Waithe, Blair Underwood, Usher, Kelly Rowland, James Van Der Beek and Jay Pharaoh.

Jill Munroe spoke with the cast about the new film and explored some of their personal thoughts about themes in the film.

Jill: Is it ok to alter yourself in order to get the opportunity to get into the room, like Anna did in the film?

Elle Lorraine:  To be honest I’ve done it at times. So, I’m not going to sit here on a high horse and pretend that I’ve never conformed or assimilated to be comfortable in a room. I understand that journey and that need. But, there is not a time that we should feel like we have to. We should be able to present ourselves as we are, in our natural state. And be appreciated for what we bring to the table… no there isn’t a time, but it’s a process and we’re still transforming.

Lena Waithe: For me, I spent so much of my life conforming. When you are a queer person and you know it, but you can’t tell anyone, you’re constantly wearing a mask. And once I moved to Los Angeles in my early twenties, I took the mask off fairly early… and sort of shunned that. But I think that’s because of my experience, and knowing that I was a little different from everyone else, and trying to be like everyone else… I had to learn that lesson quickly and very early, that when you try to hide who you are, you suffer.

Jill: In the film, Anna’s new weave seems to get her the life she has been searching for, was there a moment in your life where hair has been transformative?

Laverne Cox: So many moments, it’s always transformative. I was thinking about the first time I went blonde. I have this really intense relationship with blonde hair. Particularly because I’ve read my bell hooks – she’s an author, black feminist writer – and she’s very critical of black folks and blonde hair, and them sort of embracing white supremacy beauty standards – so I have this very intense relationship with blonde hair. The first time I went blonde, I felt like the whole world sort of looked at me differently. I was excited by that, but also troubled me deeply. It’s just really complicated.
