The Olympics comes to an end this week. Seems like it all went so fast. Team USA has already racked up its fair share of medals, but there are still more to be awarded in track and field including both men’s and women’s relays, diving and more. There are a couple of cool black movies on this weekend, including the widely-considered classic of 90’s “Boys N The Hood.” Tours continues to criss-cross the country as New Edition and Frankie Beverly and Maze duke it out for hardest working men in show business this summer. Here’s more on the weekend near you.
