Silver & Gold by Alonge Hawes
Silver & Gold is an Award-winning, multilayered series about crime, revenge, and the cost of love. The first six installments of season one are out now, and the remaining episodes will be released early this year.

But all is not as it seems, as the sins of the past slowly begin to ransack the riches of the present; leading the group down a path of violence and vengeance amidst Atlanta’s criminal underground. When Charles and Bahiya are faced with a reckoning beyond even their own comprehension, they will come to the realization that sometimes love IS the crime…
