The Perfect Find knows exactly what it’s here for: to entertain us and remind us that Black romances are some of the best of the genre. And the prime time for Black rom-coms isn’t just in the past.
The Perfect Find is the film Black audiences consistently claim they want: one without struggle and suffering, something that is full of joy and, at times, is incredibly unserious.
• Happy Pride! This profile of Big Freedia about how she’s amplifying queer artists like herself is very good.
• NBC’s new fall drama Found may seem like another missing persons network procedural, but it’s shedding light on the epidemic of missing Black women and girls who don’t get the attention they deserve.
• Dominique Fishback. That’s it. That’s what’s good.
• THE BLACKENING!!!!
• Ending the same way I always do because this is still good and necessary: defunding the police.
