    If you were starting a Black Movie Collection (or if you already have one), which movies would be "must haves" in YOUR collection?


    Choose any genre: Comedy, Drama, Horror, or Action

    No particular order required....


    For me, I would definitely have to have:


    The Autobiography Of Miss Jane Pittman
    (I tole Ned not to git on that hoss.")

    Cornbread, Earl and Me
    ("Who killed Cornbread?!")

    Cooley High

    A Warm December

    Sparkle

    Lady Sings The Blues

    (Nawww, Piano Man!)

    Roots

    A Soldier's Story

    The Color Purple

    Bingo Long Traveling Allstars & MotorKings

    ("Do you do this constantly?!.....Naw, suh!...I does dis all duh time!")

    LMBO! I never get tired of that part!
