Suggested Movie: Black is Black Ain't

Winner of the Film maker's Trophy for the Sun Dance Film Festival around when it came out in 1995--Extraordinarily Talnted Director Marlon T. Riggs [who also happens to be Black and Gay or Same Gender Loving] reached down to New Orleans to the old spicy pots of his grandmother and back with youth on inner city streets to discover just what it means to be a Black person living in North America.  ``Black Is ... Black Ain't ''  features interviews with Black leaders such as Cornell West; Angela Davis and bell hooks to bring forth a richness and flavor that almost matches that of Grandother's gumbo.  Don't miss this one.  Available at the Free Library of Philadelphia [West Philadelphia branch.]
