5 at 5 with Eunice PL


Who are you?
I am Eunice PL. Haitian Writer/Actress/ Up and coming hip hop artist/ Future philanthropist.

What is your biggest motivation/inspiration?
I am inspired to provoke thought. I want my craft to spark a conversation. My biggest motivation/inspiration is that I would like to leave the world with the thought that you should love yourself 1st and move forward from there. I feel that people who love themselves value their contributions to the world more than those who don't. 

When did you first realize you were talented in your craft?
I always knew that I was happiest when I was telling a story. On paper, through music or during a performance. Then one day I realized that I could use that to make others happy. When I was a junior in high school I wrote and performed the part of an HIV positive student. After one of our performances a woman came up to me in tears. She told me that she had to live with that everyday and she appreciated my performance for being hard hitting. That was my moment of truth in my craft.

Where can fans see/hear more of your work?
You can find me at www.EunicePL.com and at www.reverbnation.com/EunicePL
Also follow me on twitter @EunicePL and my blog is EunicePL.blogspot.com

Why do you refuse to give up?
I refuse to give up because it really is not an option. When I was growing up there was a stigma attached to being Haitian in the States. I don't want the next generation to feel that way. I want to be one more proud, productive and creative person that anyone can relate to. I want the world to judge me for my talents not for any stereotypes of Haitians/ Women/ Femcees or any other box that I may be placed into. I feel like I need to show the world that it's okay to think for yourself. 
Failure's not optional so I continue to push forward.

The end of the Breakfast Club is near

The Breakfast Club has been on air for 9 years this month, and is going strong with ratings, engagement, and seems to be adding new markets every month...but I think the end is near.
I sound crazy right? I know you're thinking, Tammy how and why would you think that a successful morning show would have it's future in the balance? Well, there are a couple of reasons, let's go through them. I mean this could all be in my head and I’m projecting, or I could have some legitimate points and the near future will tell.
Shock jock radio value going down- The Breakfast Club has been known for it's shock jock style of radio for years. Charlemagne says the most outlandish things in interviews, creates false narratives that he doesn't even agree with for hot takes, and Envy always goes against the grain and disagrees with the masses on any given topic, just to disagree. Podcasting is huge right now, put five people in a room and at least three of them have a podcast; just at the…

15 Black women that need to host SNL

Saturday Night Live has been around for 45 years this fall and has had a series of hosts, of all ethnicities, ages, and entertainment occupations. They've had hosts that are comedians, actors, singers, rappers, and more. Now, while the diversity has been decent...I would love to see more black women as hosts. I've compiled a list of black women I think would do a damn good job at hosting the late night show. Let's get started shall we...
Tracee Ellis Ross - Tracee is a no brainer and should be at the top of everyone's list when thinking of who should host when they are doing the planning over at NBC. Tracee has perfect comedic timing, which we've seen time and time again on Girlfriends, and now on Black-ish we’ve seen her transform into Rainbow Johnson, and also into the other smaller roles they play when they have episodes within their episodes, if that makes sense. Her personality is playful and fun, which is evident through her Instagram. So, she’s topping this l…

Grown-ish is a far cry from A Different World

When it was announced that Black-ish, the hit ABC sitcom about an affluent African American family doing their best to immerse their kids in the their ethnic culture while still enjoying the fruits of their labor, would be getting a spinoff following the oldest daughter, Zoe Johnson, as she headed to college people were somewhat excited. When it was pegged to be an updated and more current version of the hit series A Different World people were more than excited and the show was highly anticipated. We were expecting to see Zoe navigate life as a college freshmen, out of the sheltered and, low key white bread, lifestyle. We were anticipating seeing her explore more of her life after highschool, then it aired…



Now, don’t get me wrong, I like Grown-ish, I think it’s entertaining, but it’s a far cry from A Different World. I didn’t expect the show that be identical to A Different World, mainly since Zoe wasn’t attending an HBCU, so there’s that, but I think the show is missing the mark on …
