The pay was good, the job was good but I had two major problems; they do active enrollment for insurance and they couldn’t place me in another role once my contract ended. So, I thought I enrolled in insurance for 2023 but I found out quickly after trying to make a doctor’s appointment that I was uninsured.

After deciding not to stay on as a permanent employee, I hoped my recruiter would have been more active in…

Movies with Black leads are some of the best films out there, hands down. They are often thrilling, and suspenseful, and tell stories that we can all relate to. One great example of this is “Get Out,” a horror movie that tackles racism head-on and keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire time. Daniel Kaluuya’s performance in the lead role is simply outstanding, and the film’s commentary on race relations in America is both poignant and relevant. Another excellent movie with a Black lead is “Black Panther,” a superhero movie that completely revolutionized the genre. Chadwick Boseman’s portrayal of T’Challa was powerful and inspiring, and the movie’s Afrofuturistic world-building was nothing short of incredible. But movies with Black leads aren’t just limited to horror and superhero genres. “Widows,” a thriller starring Viola Davis, is a prime example of a movie with a Black lead that is both…
