Ledisi and Eric Benet and Frankie Beverly and Patti Labelle are the hot concert tickets this weekend. But for most of the movie-going public there’s only one choice this weekend; time to go see “The Dark Knight Rises,” the last of the rebooted “Batman” trilogy. If neither of those strikes your fancy, you can catch Kevin Hart on TV, or read a sexy compilation that will make you think of shades of black, instead of shades of grey.
The Indiana Black Expo is at the Indiana Convention Center. The Multi-cultural Oral Health Summit starts today at the Boca Raton Resort in Florida. Sybil will accept the Civil Rights Award on behalf of Tom and the Tjms on Monday Also, tomorrow is National Junk Food Day so enjoy some sweets in celebration! Here’s to the weekend, whatever your choice. Be safe and read on to see what’s happening in your neck of the woods.

You know him best from “Drumline” and “The Replacements” but writer/producer/actor/comedian Orlando Jones has been working behind the scenes for years. He started out at 19 writing for “A Different World” and “Martin” and he also worked on “Roc” and “MadTV.” You could say he knows a thing or two about multiple revenue streams as he’s also a standup comic. Yup, he’s at the Arlington Improv near Dallas this weekend.

9. Apparently my 260lbs is too much for the actual vines in the Hawaiian jungles to hold me without breaking and me falling hundreds of feet. So for safety purposes, I'm forced to swing thru #Jumanjj on wires strong enough to hold 12 adult buffaloes and 1 adult Rock. #OnSet #Jumanji #IronicallyIEatBuffaloDailyForLunch #MoreManThanNatureKnowsWhatToDoWith
