Marsai Martin, a 14-year-old African-American actress, is now a successful entrepreneur. She has recently signed a first-look production agreement with Universal Studios, making her the youngest person to do so!
Along with her own company Genius Productions, she partnered with the film studio giant where she will develop original content and hopefully provide opportunities for other young actors.
Martin, who was known for her role on ABC's Black-ish, will serve as a writer for scripted projects alongside Genius Productions co-founder Joshua Martin, VP Carol Martin, and head of creative Prince Baggett.
The first film they will produce under the deal is entitled Step Monster, a comedy film about a teenage girl -- that will be played by her -- who is adjusting to life with a new stepmother.
Universal Pictures president Peter Cramer knew it was a great decision to partner with the young entrepreneur. He said in a statement, in part, "She is not only tremendously talented in front of the camera, but offers a unique perspective as a creator and producer that will resonate with all audiences." Martin couldn't help her excitement in being a part of inspiring diverse and young ideas even behind the cameras. "I am so excited for the magic I'll be able to create and produce with Universal," Martin said in a statement. "My goal is to show young women and girls that our voices and ideas matter and you are never too young to dream BIG!"

The black community has adopted the term "Gucci" meaning "good, great, amazing". If you're not familiar with Gucci, it is a luxury brand of clothing, shoes, purses, and accessories. For some absurd reason, the brand Gucci decided to release a wool sweater for $890.00 that turns into a black face with red lips. Let's keep in mind that this is all taking place during Black History Month.
Celebrities like T.I. are calling for a boycott of Gucci. He is asking that people stop buying Gucci for the next 3 months and do not wear any previously owned Gucci gear. That's cool with me being that I never purchased anything Gucci and did not plan on it. I just want to know what happens after this 3-month boycott? Do we go back to purchasing Gucci and act like nothing ever happened?
When are these brands going to learn that the "black dollar" is the backbone of this country? I propose that instead of just boycotting Gucci for 3 months let's make a pledge to purchase from black-owned businesses. There are so many dope black clothing designers that cost less than half the price of Gucci. Let's take the "black dollar" and keep it in our community instead of these major brands that are "working on becoming more diverse". VISIT www.WeBuyBlack.com to put your money where the RESPECT IS!

Used only one product to get this amazing definition on this twist out. I used @wondercurl Sealing Hair Butter. Swipe to see the hair in action and the consistency of the product. I love butters and this one has reached to being one of my top favorites because the formula doesn't leave the hair greasy or oily. It's thick, rich and packed with oils and butters to seal the moisture in. I think if you don't like hair butters then you should try this one, a little goes a long way and it absorbs right into the strands without weighing the hair down. It has aloe vera, castor oil, and shea butter which is perfect to lock the hydration in for days. No this is not sponsored, I'm just amazed and had to show you all.
