The movie titled Divorce in the Black stars a couple of big names in the black movie industry, such as Meagan Good, Cory Hardrict, Richard Lawson, and Debbi Morgan. The film centers around a young black woman named Ava and her struggles after her husband, Dallas decides to leave their marriage.

However, Ava is determined to fight for their marriage, but fate soon reveals Dallas’ evil deeds, further ruining their chance of being together. This is the plot summary for the romantic thriller. Since 2022, Good, Hardrict, and Lawson have all made news about concerns of the heart. Some optimistic viewers believe Perry deliberately chose the three actors so they would draw from their personal experiences for the role.
