Black People Magic: LeVar Burton, Waiting to Exhale & The Fresh Prince


There’s a variety of Black People Magic to celebrate this weekend…

  • Even though we’re all crushed at the loss of Jeopardy host Alex Trebek, there’s a possibility that the new host of the game show could be actor LeVar Burton from “Roots,” “Reading Rainbow” and “Star Trek: Next Generation.” He said back in September that he’d love the job if Alex retired… and now there’s a fan petition to back him up.
  • Author Terry McMillan also confirmed this week that her classic book-turned-smash-hit movie “Waiting to Exhale” will become a television series, with “Empire” creator Lee Daniels heading up the production.
  • And if you want to relive some good memories and maybe shed a happy tear, Will Smith dropped the trailer for The Fresh Prince’s 30 year reunion yesterday (check it out below!)… it premieres next Thursday 11/19 on streaming app HBO Max.

Remember to always celebrate your magic! xo
