Social Justice- Mandela

Nelson Mandela Movie- Long Walk to Freedom





This film looks like it is going to be one of those heart-wrenching, feel-good, mad at the oppressor kind of movies. Nelson Mandela-a man, whose story of patience, justice-served, and perseverance, is known all over the world. I am thoroughly excited to see Idris in this role and am anticipating that his work in this film will mark a very pivotal point in his acting career. I cannot wait to see him step into this. And I'm sure his co-star, Naomie Harris, will most definitely not disappoint either. If you have not seen her in her other roles, such as "The First Grader," I highly suggest you take some time to check her out too. You can find The First Grader on Netflix.




Yes to Black Cinema!
This has been a fabulous year for our community. So much history being told and perspectives challenged. Is it too much to ask for some ground to be shaken in the awards arena? Hmm, we shall see...
