The Blackest love story ever told is coming soon to a theater near you. “Southside with You,” executive produced by John Legend, opens this summer and we’ve got a trailer for this Sundance-approved indie. Hit play and let us know what you think of an early glimpse at this fictionalized story of Barack Obama and Michelle Robinson’s first date.
Parker Sawyers stars as our future POTUS circa 1989. Young attorney Michelle Robinson (Tika Sumpter) agrees to spend the day with Obama on the South Side of Chicago.
