Add laughter to your end of year wrap-up with HBO Max

What better way to add laughter than to binge-watch your favorite Black shows? In the
past year, HBO Max has highlighted black shows that bring nostalgia from the ’90s to new
shows that embrace the culture today.

The end of the year can be a challenging time due to holidays, cold weather, daylight savings,
and wrapping up Q4. It’s essential to ground yourself and sprinkle some joy into your daily
routine.
