WakandaCon: Reggie Ponder catches up with Allison Manswell – connecting the Black Panther Movie to lessons we can use in our careers

 

 

DOPE writer/director Rick Famuyiwa and cast members talk about new film

Rick Famuyiwa, Kiersey Clemons and Allen Maldonado talk to Reggie Ponder, about their new film, DOPE.

DOPE is shared at the 2015 ABFF

That’s right, Dope was shared at the 2015 ABFF. But not puff, puff, pass, pass or snort or sniff, or even shoot up. It was ingested in cinematic form, that is. While I can’t review the film yet, I can say the stars came out and even had fun at the Old School party with D-Nice on the one’s and two’s.
