Thursday night, at the Mondrian Hotel’s Herringbone Restaurant, Essence hosted its first-ever Toast to Primetime, an event celebrating its October issue with trailblazing television stars Laverne Cox, Alfre Woodard, Nicole Beharie, and Danai Gurira on the cover.

The cover story examines all four actresses’ contributions to redefining the face of television on their respective shows: Orange Is the New Black for Cox, State of Affairs for Woodard, Sleepy Hollow for Beharie, and The Walking Dead for Gurira. Guests—including Cox and Gurira, as well as Pooch Hall, Ledisi, Terrence Jenkins, A.J. Johnson, and Essence Atkins, among others—gathered to celebrate diversity on television.

Wendell Pierce Bunks-out (on Twitter) over the Super Bowl

Last night’s Super Bowl was the fiercest, darkest sporting event of the year.

Also, for a few brief moments, the Bunk-est.

Actor Wendell Pierce took to Twitter to talk about the big game — and tweeted from the perspective of Bunk, the eye-rolling, good-hearted, foul-mouthed detective he played on HBO’s The Wire (the show that made America fascinated and repulsed by Baltimore institutionalism).
