Culture & Entertainment

The way the sun is hitting proves that our Hot Girl summer has officially kicked off, because sis, it is smoldering in these streets.

We know you've been out here drinking your water, growing your edges, and living your best life in this summer heat, but if you need a break and some good old fashioned R&R, there's no better way to do that than with a seasonal spritzer and a new Netflix favorite that you can binge to your heart's desire; and luckily, xoNecole has you covered with a list of everything that's new and black AF on the streaming service.


Here's what you can look forward to on Netflix this July:

A Thin Line Between Love & Hate - July 1

When a young bachelor with commitment issues meets a beautiful woman in the club, he thinks he's hit the jackpot, but it isn't until later when he learns that everything that glitters ain't gold. This hilarious spin on Fatal Attraction was released in 1996 and stars iconic actors Martin Lawrence and Lynn Whitfield. 20 years later, A Thin Line Between Love and Hate is a stark warning for men who like to play with fragile hearts.

Stranger Things 3 - July 4

Back from a two-year hiatus, the third season of Stranger Things promises even more eighties nostalgia and teenage angst than before and picks up with the gang less than a year where they left off when they are approaching adolescence as well as some of their most challenging adventures yet. Showrunners anticipate that this season will be the biggest season so far and will feature the full original cast.

Kinky - July 9

Netflix

Starring Robert Ri'Chard (One on One) and Dawn Richard from Danity Kane, Kinky just might be the erotic 50-Shades of Black-style thriller you didn't know you needed. When a successful surgeon seeks a little excitement, she stumbles upon a wealthy entrepreneur who has an affinity for spanking and boy, do I need that in my life. While the movie has gotten some pretty poor ratings online, if you've got an hour and 10 minutes to spare, you can check out Kinky on Netflix starting July 9.

Family Reunion - July 10

When two free-spirited parents and their three kids uproot their lives leave Seattle to reconnect with family down south, they encounter a major culture shock right in the heart of the Bible belt. This sitcom-style comedy boasts itself on having an all-black writers team and stars Tia Mowry-Hardrict, Loretta Devine, and a few other familiar faces.

Last Chance U: Indy  Part 2 - July 19

Sports has never really been my thing, but a reality TV show about smalltown football with big dreams is filled with all the drama I didn't know I needed. Returning for its 4th season, the Emmy-nominated series follows a championship-worthy junior college football team from Independence, Kansas and their fight for a future in the league.

Queer Eye: Season 4 - July 19

The last time I was getting my hair braided, my stylist put me on the Fab Five in a major way. For four hours straight, we laughed, cried, and YASS'd with the fabulous Queens of Queer Eye and my life will never be the same. Later this month, our five favorite men are hitting the streets of Kansas City in search of souls to touch and lives to dazzle for their fourth and most fabulous season yet.

Orange Is The New Black: Season 7 - July 26

It's finally come time for us to bid farewell to the ladies of Litchfield and my heart can't take it. Will Daya baby daddy finally bring his funky ass back around? How will Piper readjust to life as a free woman? Will Taystee ever forgive her BFF, Cindy? We have questions and Season 7 of Orange is the New Black promises to answer every single one of them.

What 14 People Say 'Great Sex' Means To Them

What is the difference between bad, average, and great sex? If I ask thirty people this question, I would get thirty different answers. As someone who's had their fair share of both good and not-so-good sex, I understand that there is no one size fits all answer to this question. "Great sex" can mean different things to different people. Case in point, I once had an amazing sexual experience with a guy that a mutual “friend” had a horrible experience with. Great sex is subjective AF! According to the mutual friend his sex was subpar at best. One person’s trash is another one’s treasure. Great sex boils down to what is good for you and your partner at the moment. No two people are the same so no two sexual experiences will be the same either.

Halle Bailey On The Revolutionary Act Of Wearing Her Locs As Ariel

When the trailer for The Little Mermaid dropped, everyone finally got to see Halle Bailey as Ariel. Black women and girls raved over the singer/ actress’s beauty as the beloved character while she belted out the Disney classic song “Part of Your World.” And one of the most noticeable things that many fans pointed out was that the character’s red hair was made of locs.

5 Times Megan Thee Stallion & Pardison Fontaine Showed Their Love On The 'Gram

Another day, another photo of Megan Thee Stallion that went viral. But this time she had a little help from her boyfriend Pardison “Pardi” Fontaine. The “Pressurelicious” artist’s fans were in for a surprise a few days ago after Megan posted a photo of herself lying on the floor with her legs up and wrapped around Pardi’s waist. Pardi appeared to be focused on playing his video game while Meg’s derriere was tooted in the air but he managed to wrap his arms around it as he held the controller.

The Mamie 'Till' Movie Wants To Empower Us

Sitting in the theater getting ready to watch Nopefor the third time, I was excited, like a good film nerd, to see my friend's first-time reactions to the fun UFO horror-comedy. My heart sank immediately when a trailer for the film Till, which follows the life and legacy of Emmett Till's mother, Mamie, started playing first.

My knee-jerk reaction, of course, comes from years of watching film and TV that have exploited Black trauma onscreen and were created with little (if any) consideration for what could emotionally trigger the Black audience. The 1955 murder of Emmett Till is so heartbreaking and inherently violent; would this film make us live through that violence on screen?

Fortunately, no!

This week, before watching Gina Prince-Bythewood's incredible The Woman King, a featurette for Till played in place of a trailer and it soothed my fears.

"There will be no physical violence against Black people on screen," the film's award-winning director and co-writer Chinonye Chukwu says in the featurette. "I'm not interested in relishing in that kind of physical trauma. We're going to begin and end in a place of joy," she says.

Starring Danielle Deadwyler (whose heartfelt performance on HBO's Station Eleven stole the show) as Mamie, Till is a celebration of Mamie's tireless activism which sparked the civil rights movement that continues today and ultimately culminated in President Biden signing the Emmett Till Anti-Lynching Act into law just a few months ago in March 2022. "Mamie Till Mobley is a hero," says Alana Mayo, president of Orion Pictures, the production company behind the film. "I'm really, really committed to making movies not just by us, but for us," Mayo says in the featurette.

After a private screening of Till, this week, Trayvon Martin's mother, Sybrina Fulton, tweeted that the film was "#Powerful" and "a must see."

Mamie's story of courage in the face of unspeakable tragedy deserves to be told--especially as we continue the fight for civil rights today. Knowing that the Black filmmakers behind the film are centering Black joy and aiming for our empowerment through the film makes a world of difference.

TILLis in theaters October 14.
