    This movie is on HBO, written by Ruben Santiago-Hudson.
    This movie is one of those black movies that you have to see.
    The primary focus of the movie was of the type of woman that is
    absent from the black family and community these days.
    Her name was Ms Rachel or nanny or momma. She was the
    type of woman that binded a community together. Very
    strong woman. She had a 3rd grade education but on life
    she had a PhD and then some.
    This movie made me think of my grandmother something
    serious. A strong black woman who demanded respect by
    her actions. And who had no problem taking care of her
    family. Her whole family. Whether blood or not.
    This movie basically showed
    the important aspect on how it takes a village to raise a
    child. Especially around the time when desegregation started
    to kill the Blackman's drive to be his own man.


    Peace...

    Yes, I enjoyed this movie, even more so the second time I watched it. It was the type of movie where I wanted to know even more about some of the supporting characters, they were that interesting. Definitely worth seeing.
