Powerful, Black, & "Undercover:" The Akils

I love reading about powerful Black dealmakers - as I believe it serves as inspirational to others.

The Hollywood Reporter is not one of my regular reads but shout out to them for this great feature article on "Hollywood's Undercover Hitmakers: Salim and Mara Brock Akil" by Kim Masters.

The article's drop quote says it all: "They're black, Muslim and gorgeous in an industry not known for its diverse embrace. Yet the husband and wife have made one Hollywood winner after another, and now have Whitney Houston's final film, "Sparkle," as their biggest bet yet."
I look forward to your feedback about this article on Facebook!
