  1. Nia, Malinda Williams, Sanna Lathan and Gabrielle Union are my favorite Black actresses.Anything they do I will watch and more of them should step into television roles so we can see them more often.

  2. I love, love, LOVE me some Nia on screen. I’ve always felt she’s deserved more success than what she’s been credited with, why don’t we see more of her on film/tv??

  3. Why does she have to appear on shows I don’t even watch or know exist?
