POC I'm Watching: The Cast of "Explicit Ills" (2008)

Here's a film you probably haven't watched. And since it's a film based on a real-life story about heavy-lifting, you probably haven't even heard of it.

Needless to say, there is some sadness in this film.

While watching this film, some familiar faces as well as certain up and coming young POC really stood out to me.

Martin Cepeda

Jermain Crawford

Ross K. Kim-McManus

Francisco Burgos

Destini Edwards*

Naomie Harris

Rosario Dawson

Rukiya Thomas
Family dinner.


Too cute.

Study buddies.

Family charades.

Still too cute.


Cute even after a funeral.

*I've got my eye on Miss Thang here.  If Destini Edwards ever wants to play a young Ororo Munroe, she TOTALLY has my vote.


  1. I will be watching this.

  2. I'll have to check this out. A big fan of Jermaine Crawford from his role in the Wire
