The evening will kick off with a viewing and discussion of Chris Rock’s Oscar monologue, then hosts Javicia Leslie and Courtney Burrell will join other actors and fans of the network in debating some of the finest in Black cinema.

Debaters will go toe-to-toe, arguing their case for their favorite films. Categories will include Coming to America v.s. Boomerang, Brown Sugar v.s. The Wood, Greatest of All Time Vintage Black Cinema, Greatest of All Time Denzel Performance, and main event, Love Jones v.s. Love & Basketball.

Black&Sexy TV, aimed primarily at black audiences, premiered their original programming on YouTube in 2011. Since then, they’ve launched a premium subscription service, partnered with BET Networks to air three web series including “Hello Cupid”, and are working with HBO to develop their 2012 show “The Couple”.

The Battle Of The G.O.A.T.s broadcast will air on Youtube, Facebook, Periscope, and The Root, where viewers will be able to vote live for the winners in each category.

We’ll be watching!
