Tasha Smith Says, ‘If We Don’t Love Our Kids, The Streets Will’


Actress and director Tasha Smith was so excited to be on the show! Her new movie When Love Kills: The Falicia Blakely Story premieres on TV One. This is her directorial début.

On the idea for the movie, Tasha laughed and said,”Girl the movie found me!”

The story focuses on the life of Falicia Blakely who was an exotic dancer. “The story is tragic but a cautionary tale. We hear about these things, but I don’t think we’ve heard that this young lady is spending her life in jail, “explained Smith.

Smith talked about how this story shows just how important it is to protect girls. “If we don’t love our kids the streets will. We don’t pay enough attention to our girls. If we are not the loudest voices in their head then we don’t know where they’ll end up,” explained Smith.

    SN: My baby girl is off to college, first year, and we’ve had our bad days for sure, but before she left, I wrote her a LOVE letter. I cried while writing it. I let my closest friends read it, they said it bought tears to their eyes and that every parent should write their child a similar letter. This letter is where you but your pride aside and pour your feelings into it, let them know that you are their biggest fan and cheerleader, and that when they fail at something, you’ll still be there to pick their spirits up. Last but not least, let them know, who really has their back (whether they believe in HIM or not), His grace and mercy is everlasting.
    I was really surprised that when I cleaned up her disgusting room, lol, the letter wasn’t there, when honestly, I was expecting it to be there balled up lol. I hope she really takes it to heart and it means something to her.

    ” If we are not the loudest voices in their head…” very profound. So many girls/women are lost to the streets, because the loudest voices came from people who were not good FOR them.

    • Specialt- much success to your daughter. Those are words to live by. We always give our kids advice, and hopefully they will take it. A lot of times they won’t, but l really believe they still hear our voices in their heads.

        Thank you Diane, that’s my greatest prayer, is for her to hear my voice or her dad’s, whenever she’s in doubt, if not ours, than someone she respects as a voice of reason. I have to let go of my fear and let God.
