As someone who's been a working journalist and video content creator for more than a decade, I want to take my storytelling to the next level, particularly when it comes to telling the stories of black women. I want to be someone who helps change the narrative. The 20th anniversary of the American Black Film Festival (ABFF) seemed like the right place to cultivate creative inspiration.

"I think if anything, we're back to our real roots."
Bring on the baby tees and velour hoodies!
It's time to say goodbye.
In case you forgot, the first season of "Degrassi Junior High" came out a long time ago. Almost 30 years ago, to be exact, and our beloved stars have grown up a lot since then. While most of them hav...
Lots of people talk about their horrible high school experiences, but let's face it, these "Degrassi" kids, past and present, have certainly had some of the worst times ever. In some circles, it's kno...
A "crossover" is when characters from one series/property appear in an unrelated series/property. In comic books, the "shared universe" idea is so intrinsic, characters regularly guest star in each other's magazines. There are different reasons for doing a TV crossover. The first is just for the fun of it.
Last month, we asked HuffPost Canada readers for their thoughts on their cable, phone and internet service providers (Hint: they don't like them very much). We also asked our readers about their picks...
Re-watching Canadian TV classic "Degrassi: The Next Generation", which is on its 13th season, brings back so many memories: Teen angst, ridiculous plot points and of course, the hilarious and question...

School may be out but that doesn't mean TV is. In fact, with the resurrection of scripted summer TV (thanks, "Under the Dome"), not to mention the usual reality fare that comes with the heat and humid...
Never tell Spencer West that he can't do something. A congenital spinal disorder rendered his legs useless, so at age five, West underwent a double amputation to remove them. His biggest challenge -- so far -- was climbing Mount Kilimanjaro for charity last June. Today, we were with West as he kicked off the We Walk 4Water campaign, starting a 300-kilometre trek from Edmonton to Calgary.
Canadian actress and emerging playwright, Sarena Parmar, has performed in film, television and on the stage. In this in-depth interview on Extraordinary Women TV with Shannon Skinner, Parmar discusses her rapid rise in her acting career, how her South Asian background has influenced her work, her interest in human rights and advocacy, and also her involvement with Plan Canada's "I Am A Girl" campaign.
We've known Munro Chambers since his TV character, Eli Goldsworthy, pulled into the parking lot of the fictional Degrassi High in his vintage Hearse. Whether he's starring in a satirical fundraising video to benefit Haiti, or building a school in Ghana, 22-year-old Chambers is making a difference. We caught up with Chambers at a build site in Ghana, where he and his fellow Degrassi: The Next Generation cast members were volunteering to build a school.
Every season "Degrassi" promises more drama, but it seems like it's really happening this time around. HuffPost Canada and HuffPost TV were able to sit down with five stars from the popular teen show...
Got a question for the cast of "Degrassi"? We’re interviewing Munro Chambers, Cristine Prosperi, Alex Steele, Annie Clark and Alicia Josipovic from the hit show next Tuesday and we’re letting you ask...
It seems fitting that on the launch of Huffington Post TV Canada, I'm examining the future of Canadian television. After all, when I first started covering television in 2002, blogs were so new that p...
After watching nearly 11 seasons, I can't emphasis enough how awesome this show continues to be. Halfway through the summer season, we've seen a murder, cocaine use, a student stealing his teacher's underwear, liver failure, bed bugs... Seriously folks, I couldn't make this stuff up.
