Regina King & More In All-Black Re-imagining Of “The Golden Girls”
Over the last few years we've seen the "reboot" become a new Hollywood staple, and this time some of Black Hollywood's best actresses are teaming up to "re-imagine" one of TV's greatest sitcoms.
Legendary actress Alfre Woodard will play Dorothy, "Black-ish" star Tracee Ellis Ross will play Rose, "Love & Basketball" actress Sanaa Lathan will play Blanche, and Regina King will play Sophia. Lena Waithe will be the host of the event being directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood.

In an effort to further engage our community and drive change, all you need to do to enjoy this evening is sign up to receive messages about how you can make a change during this election! This event is in partnership with Zoom, and the first episode is spotlighting and supporting Color of Change - the nation's largest online racial justice organization. - Mobilize
