Thanks very much for posting this, Chuck. I'd never heard of him. I watched Ceddo after seeing your post. Great movie.

I appreciate all feedback...

And even criticism has its merits...

All I will add further:

To me, the legacies of African American Oscar Micheaux and African Ousmane Sebene, not kneegrows in black face and/or today's would be rappers latest videos, or what today's young (or not so young) black filmmakers be getting their minds around...

To the West Coast etc.

What did or do you know about the legacy of the late Oscar Micheax in particular?

It seems and sounds like more than just Spike Lee could and should get his/her mind around their unique approach...

I. e., in both the cases of brother Oscar and brother Sembene, their takes were/are on the level of pure genius...

Let's do kick it about them a wee bit further...

And thanks in advance...

Gracious Queen I hope you do come back to destee...I see last time you were online here was 6 years ago on my birthday...I was probably probably taking a puff on that good 'ol stuff at the time...maybe sitting back sipping Coffee, Tea, or Wine...I just had to go back and read your previous posts.
Moved back to the Borough of my birth...Queens New York...Originally from SouthSide but now I live in Far Rockaway.
