Love is Blind What is love? Is it blind, blurry, or crystal clear? Well, that’s what Netflix’s “Love is Blind” seeks to answer. Now in its sixth season, the show challenges singles to develop emotional connections with each other and get engaged to be married, all before seeing them in person. It starts with participants communicating as they are in different rooms and separated by a wall, which cast members hope ends in a proposal. Next comes the big reveal in which now-engaged couples see each other for the first time. Later, couples intermingle, live together, and experience their reality i ..read more

‘The Color Purple’ is a Vibrant Reintroduction to a Story of Healing and Empowerment

Growing up, I vaguely knew about the 1985 film, “The Color Purple.” The movie registered to me in bits and pieces, as I was too young to understand the depth of the story. When I entered my teenage years, I began to familiarize myself with both the original 1982 novel and also the critically acclaimed movie. However, in recent years I was shocked to learn that Alice Walker’s book was slowly inching its way up several lists of Banned Books in public facilities and libraries in various regions of the country. Though these policies hadn’t affected me directly, I was upset to learn that curious re ..read more

VOX 5: Influential Black Women in Rock

As a fan of rock music and a good amount of its sub-genres, I’ve realized that I don’t really see that many Black women. I’ve seen or heard about many Black men in the genre, like Jimi Hendrix, Chuck Berry, Bad Brains, etc., but not Black women. I found that to be strange, so I did my research – and man, there are way more amazing Black woman artists who I feel don’t get the spotlight they deserve. There are a lot of talented Black women in the genre, honestly too many for one list. So I decided to just pick five of the most influential Black women rock stars I found from my research along wit ..read more

In today’s world, where history often feels like a distant and dull subject, “Hamilton” stands out as a game-changer.

Oh, Sh-t! Is Cursing Still Shocking?

by Micah Parness
4M ago
Walk the halls of any high school in America, and I can practically guarantee you will hear two words: “f-ck” and “sh-t.” This figurative promise indicates how commonplace curse words have become in the vernacular of younger generations. But what is more debatable is whether cursing remains shocking, and if by keeping on this trajectory, future generations will become even more desensitized. Some parents think that cursing is incredibly surprising and should not be included in adolescents’ regular vocabularies. However, others may believe cursing has no shock value, regardless of where, when ..read more

Why Are Female Anime Characters So Badly Written? [Opinion]

by Marley Jahi
5M ago
Anime is a very diverse genre, so why are the female characters so badly written? Shonen anime is a genre of anime directed to boys and young men. It is one of the most popular genres of anime and enjoyed by a large audience. Anime has so many characters with amazing stories, but when it comes to the women and girls in the story, they are boiled down to bland shells of a character. For the sake of this article I will mostly be referring to Shonen anime. Seventy-seven percent of mangaka (a person who writes manga), the book form of anime are women. Knowing that statistic, it is shocking that me ..read more

Being born and raised in Atlanta, I’ve been submerged in the hip-hop culture of the city for my whole life. From car rides to school, where the 808 seemed to make the windows shake, to cleaning the house listening to the voices of Young Joc and OutKast. I’ve had the privilege to be immersed in this culture. Little did I know how big of an impact hip-hop has had on Atlanta, the South, and the whole United States. Named after Andre 3000’s famous call-to-action, “The South Got Something to Say” is a new documentary from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The Horne Brothers created this film as a w ..read more

The VOX ATL Durand Bernarr Interview Backstage at One Music Fest

When I sat down with singer-songwriter Durand Bernarr after his One Music Fest set in Atlanta’s Piedmont Park, he was dressed in a white crocodile leather suit and sported chic, angular sunglasses resting on the bridge of his nose. Just an hour earlier, Durrand had wowed the crowd with his R&B and Hip Hop inspired music. Bernarr, resting afterward in the media tent took questions from various reporters with no signs of fatigue or tiredness — something I doubt many others would be able to do after such a powerful performance. Noticing my nervousness at the start of the interview, Berna ..read more
