Movie Mondays: African American Films you may have missed

2014 was another banner year for African American films and filmmakers, capped off by Chris Rock’s hysterical turn as star and director of Top Five and Selma, which has earned a Best Picture nod at this year’s Academy Awards as well as a nearly perfect 99% score on Rotten Tomatoes.

For history buffs like me, Very Interesting, highly recommend.
They are true to their definitions, although I disagree with some definitions. Maybe not entirely accurate, but nobody with a strong view will be seen as absolutely accurate by everyone.
See for yourself.
Educator friend going to see this.

A good documentary on the burial of black history via white supremacy which leads to a lot of viewer research. The main thing that bothered me was after hearing some of their "facts" (no disrespect) I need to see sources of the information for I'm not to keen on taking people for their word no matter how educated and professional. I researched almost everything they spoke of (movie was like 6 hours for me) and some things that came up just didn't match up but that's expected when researching deeper in African history. And yes the "h" in my name is intentional.

The one thing that i really didn't expect part 1 of this documentary series to do was to WORSHIP Barack ''OBUMA'' because of the fact that his mother is Caucasian and his father is Black.I actually thought that i was going to end up giving this a much higher star rating than 3 stars,but the totally unexpected Barack ''OBUMA'' promotion so to speak really pisses me off period.Another thing that really rubs me the wrong way about this documentary is the fact that i hear a black woman ladies and gentlemen say out of her own mouth that ''WE DON'T HAVE TO UNITE,JUST HAVE THE SAME IDEA''.If you think i am LYING and you have NOT seen this otherwise extremely educational documentary,rent and share this with all the black people you can right now and tell me what you think about this personally as soon as you can,OK?????????????????????? BLACK PEOPLE REFUSING TO COME TOGETHER AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER GENUINELY WORLDWIDE IS THE REASON WHY THEY FINISH LAST FOR EVERYTHING THAT THEY NEED AND THAT IS GOOD PERIOD.POLITICS OWNS BLACK PEOPLE PERIOD,BUT YOU DON'T HEAR ME THOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a very informative documentary and I urge anyone of any race/nationality to educate themselves on the society in which they live in, but more so specifically in this case anyone of color. It highlights many of the social norms and ideas we accept due to our immersion in our society that we really should question.
