Every July 15 is Jackie Washington Day—now we are going real cult classic, so keep up. Jackie Washington is a fictional R&B diva played by the one and only Jenifer Lewis in the starry 1999 Lifetime mockumentary Jackie’s Back. Just check out this insanely amazing trailer (every frame has one celeb or another).
So as the story goes, beginning in 1984, every July the 15th was considered Jackie Washington Day, a day to honor the diva in her hometown.
You can find the whole movie online ::Cough::YouTube::Cough:: and you should because Jenifer Lewis is a treasure.
So this Jackie Washington Day we celebrate with eight videos of Ms. Jenifer Lewis doing what she does best.
A Hairspray moment for your nerves.
