Ma Rainey era una proscrita.Viola Davis in Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom Ma-Rainy Alice Walkers Garden

Thanksgiving.

Between the World and Me brings to mind a line from a Nikki Giovanni poem:  Black love is black wealth. Love runs throughout this beautiful film based on Ta-Nahisi Coates’ important book; as well as a welcome sharing of masculine emotion.
