Bed & breakfast owners Monique Greenwood, Glenn Pogue and Glynn Pogue will join the Oprah Winfrey Network’s cadre of hit television series later this month as “Checked Inn” premieres and brings OWN’s audience on a journey that showcases the ups and downs of running not one, but four inns!
Greenwood and her husband opened their first inn, Akwaaba Bed & Breakfast, in Brooklyn, N.Y. in 1995 and they have been expanding ever since. Her Washington, D.C. location is famous for featuring rooms dedicated to Harlem Renaissance royalty with rooms inspired by authors Zora Neale Hurston and Langston Hughes.
Watch and see how Greenwood, former editor at Essence magazine, keeps it all together as she juggles the demands of running an empire.
Circle back to TNJ.com later this week where we’ll have coverage of the series including interviews with cast members and quotes from Monique herself.
“Checked Inn” airs on November 21 at 10 p.m.
