Introducing a show about classic to contemporary "Black" movies and what makes them Black...or not.
Your host, Jonathan McMillan and guests watch/rewatch movies and discuss the who, what, where, and why they are out aren't considered to be "Black" movies. Are they good movies or hood movies, or something in between?
Who belongs on the Black actor/director Mt. Rushmore? Which actor(s) automatically make a movie "Black" if they're in it? Same for directors?
Are there "Black" movies that aren't considered Black? What movie would you like to see get the "Black treatment"?
In this extended episode Black female educator, librarian, and my friend Janet Damon examine the classic and controversial film The Color Purple. We discuss the implied and explicit themes of the book including the legacy of slavery, sexual abuse and sexually liberation, plus the cast, the social impact of the film and much, much more! I apologize for the poor sound quality of my mic in the first half of the show. Hopefully the conversation is engaging enough to make up for it. Also, I added audio clips from the movie to the show to remind you of some of the most iconic and favorite scene! The link for the video to new movies that Janet mentioned is https://t.co/0qdVHwe5B9.
