On Netflix: Da 5 Bloods

July 10, 2020

Da 5 Bloods has the potential to be a timely, thoughtful allegory. They fought together in Vietnam decades ago. Now they’re headed back to Nam to retrieve the body of their fallen commanding officer (Chadwick Boseman, Black Panther) and hunt for a pile of gold. The vets share a brotherly love: Paul (Delroy Lindo, Malcolm […]

Movies On Demand: Miss Juneteenth

June 19, 2020

A small Black neighborhood in the Fort Worth, Texas metro area. A former teenage beauty queen whose opportunities never panned out. It’s a microcosm. A blip on the radar. Just big enough to provide strong underpinnings for an earnest character-driven story. Juneteenth, aka Freedom Day, Jubilee Day or the Black Fourth of July, is an […]

Now On Netflix: There’s Something in the Water

June 12, 2020

They’re making a lot of noise up in Nova Scotia. Local activists of African and Native American descent are holding big businesses and the government accountable for polluting their water and causing an uptick in cancer cases. They’re sounding the alarm and applying pressure. The surprising but very worthy champion of their efforts to expose […]

Now on Netflix: The Lovebirds

May 28, 2020

It probably looked really good on paper. Bickering couple gets caught up in a murder and goes on the lam. It’s just enough of a framework for two comic geniuses to flaunt their comedy licks. Kumail Nanjiani made a name for himself on the series Silicon Valley, and hit it big with the romantic comedy […]

Book Review: Odetta: A Life in Music and Protest

May 14, 2020

The first note had your foot tapping. It didn’t stop until the set was over or the LP needed flipping. The song moved you; those words meant everything and the singer of those tunes? She was the entire reason those notes were worth listening to. In the new book “Odetta” by Ian Zack, you’ll find […]

Book Review: “Ready to Rise”

April 30, 2020

You know you have it. There’s all kinds of potential inside you but how can you actually use it? Says author Jo Saxton in her new book “Ready to Rise,” it takes determination, a community, strength, belief in yourself, and a little leaning on God. After hearing her seventh-grade daughter give a speech to classmates, […]

Book Review: “Dangerous Crooked Scoundrels”

April 23, 2020

You’ve got a few things to say about that guy in the White House. If not now, well, you’ve said a few things about other guys in the White House over the years – much of it civil, but some of it was inappropriate for polite society. And in “Dangerous Crooked Scoundrels” by Edwin L. […]

Book Review: “It’s Not All Downhill from Here”

April 17, 2020

Getting old ain’t for sissies. Aging is not for the weak, whiners, or wimps, not for fraidy-cats or those with no confidence, and aging is absolutely not for the inflexible. But then again, as in the new novel by Terry McMillan, “It’s Not All Downhill from Here,” either. The last thing Loretha Curry wanted was […]

Book Review: “Turn It Up!”

April 8, 2020

It starts with tapping toes. It’s followed by shaking shoulders, waving arms, and swaying hips: you hear music and pretty soon, you’re dancing to a beat, and maybe even singing along with an artist you really love to listen to. Can you imagine your great-grandma dancing? Or her grandma? In “Turn It Up!” by Joel […]
