I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday and a safe New Year's Eve! I am so ready for what 2013 has to offer!
I've chosen the theme for this month and will be kicking things off this coming Sunday. I believe this month's theme may be the most informative yet--I'm very anxious to start!
In the meantime, Turner Classic Movies has released their schedule for the month of January. They will be showing quite a few films featuring People of Color (although they are on at the oddest hours--in EST anyway).
For the first two weeks of January, TCM will be showing:

The Littlest Rebel (1935)
Starring Shirley Temple, featuring Bill "Bojangles" Robinson.

Of course, TCM will also be showing other great Classic Movies as always! Here is the full schedule for the month of January.
I hope everyone enjoys their day and has an excellent New Year!
