@The Improv Houston
It will be Marlon Wyans this weekend at Houston's Improv as he gives us his national tour at the country's Improv venues. The Wyans show is a great weekend starter he opens at the comedy club this Thursday.
Wayans can be seen starring in the Netflix movie SEXTUPLETS which tells the story of Alan (Wayans), a man embarking on a personal journey to meet his birth mother before the arrival of his first child. When Alan meets his brother, Russell, he discovers that he was born a sextuplet and decides to seek out his four other siblings (all played by Marlon). Together, the two brothers set out on a road trip to track down the rest of the family that they’ve never known. The film premiered on the streaming site in August of 2019. Wayans recently wrapped production for Sofia Coppola’s Apple-A24 movie ON THE ROCKS opposite Rashida Jones and Bill Murray. He is currently filming the Aretha Franklin feature RESPECT opposite Jennifer Hudson as Aretha.

The Death of George Floyd Reignited a Movement. What Happens Now?
Calls for racial justice touched nearly every aspect of American life on a scale that historians say has not happened since the civil rights movement of the 1960s.

George Floyd had been dead only hours before the movement began. Driven by a terrifying video and word of mouth, people flooded the South Minneapolis intersection where he was killed shortly after Memorial Day, demanding an end to police violence against Black Americans.
The moment of collective grief and anger swiftly gave way to a yearlong, nationwide deliberation on what it means to be Black in America.
First came protests, in large cities and small towns across the nation, becoming the largest mass protest movement in U.S. history. Then, over the next several months, nearly 170 Confederate symbols were renamed or removed from public spaces. The “Black lives matter” slogan was claimed by a nation grappling with Mr. Floyd’s death.
Over the next 11 months, calls for racial justice would touch seemingly every aspect of American life on a scale that historians say had not happened since the civil rights movement of the 1960s.
