Sneak Peek: Lifetime’s Betty & Coretta
We are only days away from the premiere of the Lifetime network’s new movie, Betty & Coretta. Based on a true story, the film details the lives of the widows of Martin Luther King (Coretta Scott King, played by Angela Bassett) and Malcolm X (Dr. Betty Shabazz, played by Mary J. Blige), and how they carried on as single mothers and formed a friendship after the assassination of their husbands.
According to Lifetime’s website, Betty & Coretta will kick off a month-long celebration of Black History in February, which includes two more world premiere films: Twist of Faith starring Toni Braxton and Mykelti Williamson, and Pastor Brown featuring Salli Richardson-Whitfield, Ernie Hudson, Tisha Campbell-Martin, Nicole Ari Parker, and Rockmond Dunbar.
