What is with us as a people,why don't we support black arts,i look for discussion here on black films and i find none and it isn't because folks here did not see the films,it is because we as a people have failed to support black films.
We had brief discussions here about "Miracle at Santa Anna",when the film was first released,the DVD was released in time for Black History month still no support. It was a good film well done. Black folk at least see it and discuss it what you liked or disliked.
Another piece of Black Art which i think was well done but not seen by a good number of people,"Cadillac Records",I just saw it last night on DVD. I wanted to see it in the theatres but it did not remain out long enough. The movie was fantastic. Historical and entertaining.Most importantly i think it gives a feeling for the times,i.e. how things were.I think all to often our young people have no blueprint as to how America was. They have no understanding of how far things have progressed and the price paid by the ancestors to get here. Reading about things i think often only let's the reader think of the events in the framework of his or her experiences.
We who were there no what it was like but the generations born after the 70's have no clue.
