Congratulations to the the filmmakers of Blackbird, starring Mo’Nique, Isaiah Washington, and D. Woods!

Urban Movie Channel (latest brainchild of BET founder Robert L. Johnson) announces that the theatrical release date of this coming-of-age story is April 24.

Based on the novel by Larry Duplechan and directed by Patrik-Ian Polk (Noah’s Arc), the drama draws us into the story of a teenager (and devout Christian) struggling with an emotionally disturbed mother (Mo’Nique), absentee father (Isaiah Washington) and a secret he is trying to keep under close wraps.
