Multi-award winning songstress/actress Brandy is celebrating the 25th anniversary of her self-titled debut album with the release of a new song, “Freedom Rings.” The new track was released on Brand NewEntertainment/Entertainment One.. Last season, Brandy appeared on the Fox show “Star” alongside Queen Latifah and Patti Labelle. Brandy’s self-titled, debut album –“Brandy” — was released on September 27, 1994. My, how time flies. I remember when the now 40 year-old entertainer couldn’t wait to turn 16 so that she could date and how she wanted to meet Larenz Tate.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Will Smith, just weeks away from opening his sci-fi action movie, “Gemini Man,” is heading back to Netflix. The Oscar nominated actor has signed on to star in and produce “The Council,” a crime biopic about Nicky Barnes, the Harlem-based mobster who was dubbed “Mr. Untouchable,” written by Peter Landesman. Smith will play Barnes, the man who partnered with the Italian Mafia to start his own drug syndicate. Barnes was arrested in 1978, then went into the witness protection program and, although he died in 2012, his death was only reported this year.

On September 26, Warner Brothers Pictures hosted a special screening of the new film, “Motherless Brooklyn,” for Morehouse, Spellman and Clark Atlanta students at Regal Atlantic Station in Atlanta. Director, writer, producer and star Edward Norton, along with actor Michael Kenneth Williams, were on hand for a Q&A after the screening. The film’s cast also includes Bruce Willis, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Alec Baldwin and Willem Dafoe. “Motherless Brooklyn” hits theaters November 1.

Former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams will headline Brooklyn Community Foundation’s annual Invest in Brooklyn Dinner — a benefit for the organization ‘s racial and social justice work taking place at the Weylin in Brooklyn, New York on Friday, October 18. In addition to celebrating local nonprofit change-makers, the dinner will also spotlight national and local efforts leading up to the 2020 Census in a conversation between Abrams and New York Times best-selling author, award-winning journalist, thought leader and former Editor-in-Chief of Teen Vogue  Elaine Welteroth. The Brooklyn Community Foundation is the first and only public foundation dedicated to New York City’s largest borough.
