‘EBONY’ Places ‘Miss Virginia’ in List of Top Motherhood TV Movies

May 10, 2021

EBONY magazine placed MPI’s Original feature film Miss Virginia in their list of top seven TV movies “that highlight the magnificence (and struggles) of Black motherhood.” 

Inspired by the true story of Virginia Walden Ford, Miss Virginia stars three-time Emmy winner Uzo Aduba (Mrs. America, Orange Is the New Black) as a struggling single mother who is losing her fifteen-year-old son to the rough streets of Washington, DC. Unwilling to see him drop out of school and deal drugs, she places him in a private school. But when she can’t afford tuition, she launches a movement to change the system that is destroying him and thousands like him.

Watch Miss Virginia on your favorite streaming platforms including Netflix, Apple TV, and Amazon Prime Video.

The Clark Sisters: First Ladies of Gospel, the Lifetime movie directed by Christine Swanson, was also among the list. Swanson is attached to write and direct the upcoming BET and MPI Original feature film inspired by the life of criminal justice reform advocate Kemba Smith
