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.
