A Powerful Thang

This innovative drama, set in Ohio, traces a Black couple’s search for intimacy and friendship. The spirited, African-identified Yasmine (Asma Feyijinmi) is a writer and single mother who has been dating saxophone teacher Craig (John Earl Jelks) for a month. Wishing to end her self-imposed celibacy following her son’s birth, Yasmine has reached a turning point in the relationship—but Craig wants to take it slow. Sage advice from friends and family members remind them, “sex is a powerful thang.”
