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"?
Inaugural episode of The BlackFlix podcast. My special guest host is also my daughter and we discuss Disney's The Princess and the Frog. Is this Disney's first (and only) animated Black movie or is it just another Princess in distress with I'm Blackface? We examine whether or not this movie is "Black" or not and why or why not. We talk about some of the social and cinematic themes, the cast, and the soundtrack and how this film qualifies as Black...or does it?
