They Certainly Love To Work Together: 15 Black Celebrities Who Boo Up Repeatedly In Movies and Music
We love each of these actors and singers for their talent, but no role in film, TV or stage is more perfect than the roles they have together, reliving some of the most classic movie roles and songs as a duet. Here are 15 Black celebrity couples, primarily from the 90′s and beyond, we love to see together on the big screen, the main stage or in our headphones, and the many projects they’ve starred in together.
Angela Bassett & Laurence Fishburne
This perfect cinematic couple have been featured in multiple projects together, from the big screen to the small stage. This couple most famously played Ike and Tina Turner for “What’s Love Got To Do With It,” were mother and father to Tre Styles (Cuba Gooding Jr.), performed on the stage together in “Fences,” and appeared together again in the 2006 film, “Akeelah and the Bee.”

Last night’s Vision Gala, hosted by the Dance Theatre of Harlem, turned out to be a star studded success. The fundraising event, at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York, honored activist and entertainer, Harry Belafonte.
The Dance Theatre of Harlem, founded by Arthur Mitchell and Karel Shook, opened its doors in 1969. After decades of successes including international performances, education outreach programs and community outreach, the theatre went on hiatus in 2004 due to financial issues.
Last night, however, may be a turning point for the company. The fundraiser raised $390,000 which will benefit the Dance Theatre’s Next Generation Fund and Community Engagement Fund, which provides scholarships to dancers and supports arts and community programs.
With the help of contributions from last night, the company is within six months of touring again.

Looking at the pages of some of the top fashion magazines, it seems that if you’re in the over 50 club, you should be wearing sheaths, pointy witch-toed heels and embellished muumuus wherever you go. But that’s all wrong. Just because you hit the halfway point in your life doesn’t mean you can’t be as fly at 50 as you are as an agile young adult. Get rid of the boring hues, turtleneck tops and jeans that ride over your stomach, and take note of how to rock 50 the right way by these beautiful leading Hollywood ladies. Cause if you didn’t remember, black don’t crack, so neither should your wardrobe.
