If You Loved Empire, Then You’ll Love Power

Power. The Complete First Season

Click the image to find Power in our online catalog.

Many of you may have watched the first season of the hit television show, Empire staring Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard, which focuses around family and each individuals struggle for power. But there is another show you should watch that is similar and equally as popular as Empire called Power. Power just ended its second season (on August 15) and is a show exclusive to the Starz Network.  Due to the fact that Starz is not readily available without paying a fee, many people may not have seen or even heard of the show. But despite this fact the show has many great things going for itself.

For example, rapper 50 Cent not only co-produces the show, but he also plays the role of Kanan (which happens to be a smaller role) in addition to largely advertising the show through his social networks. Secondly, the shows cast includes many up and coming actors who have played small roles in many popular feature films and TV shows. For example, the main character on the show is James “Ghost” St. Patrick, who is played by Omari Hardwick, an actor that has starred on television programs such as, Breakout Kings, CSI Miami and Being Mary Jane and movies such as, For Colored Girls, Sparkle (2012) and Gridiron Gang. He plays a wealthy New York night club owner who has it all and caters to the city’s elite all while dreaming big. The catch is that the main character lives a double life as he also is a drug kingpin.

Overall, Power is a great show to watch for several reasons. First, the show has a lot of drama and unexpected twists that will surely have you at the edge of your seat. Additionally, each episode is always better than the last, has great music and will leave you feeling very emotional. Those considering watching Power should note that the show is Rated R due to foul language and an excessive use sex and violence as the creators of the hit television program held nothing back.

Although this series is not suggested for children, many adults should find this show to be entertaining. For example, Power would be ideal for a reader that enjoys reading true crime and urban fiction books by the likes of authors such as Iceberg Slim, Nikki Turner, Eric Jerome Dickey, Carl Weber and Zane.

Fortunately, for those without Starz, the show is available for checkout through the library. The best thing about this service is that you didn’t even have to pay a fee to watch it! So if you enjoyed watching Empire or are looking to start a new television series, then check out Power today!

International Left Handers Day

0

Today is International Left Handers Day, which recognizes the left handed population. In a right handed world where most gadgets, office supplies, cooking supplies and various other objects are catered to the right handed population, the left handers can easily be forgotten. But left handers are said to make up 10 – 12 percent of the population and includes celebrities such as Whoopi Goldberg, Oprah Winfrey, Justin Bieber, Jimi Hendrix and Marilyn Monroe.

Historically, left handedness has been viewed by many to be a negative and sinister trait to have. But International Left Handers Day attempts to bring light to the positive aspects of being left handed while still recognizing the negative associated with the trait.

So today, if you are right handed try doing your normal day to day activities with your left hand and witness the difficulty left handers go through living in a right handed world. As for the left handers, celebrate today by taking pride in the good and bad of being left handed. And if you happen to know a right handed person find entertainment in them as they try to perform their day to day duties with their left hand!

Below are books perfect for today’s occasion. All the books below are catered to the left handed person. If you find a title that you like, then click the image to view or reserve the title in our online catalog.
