Denzel Washington’s Fences Expands Beyond the Yard and Into our Hearts

Denzel Washington’s Fences Expands Beyond the Yard and Into our Hearts

August Wilson’s Fences is as powerful a film as I have ever witnessed. I’ve wept in exactly three films in the course of my life: The Color Purple, Schindler’s List, and now Fences. The prior two films were released in 1983 and 1995, respectively, and both were directed by Steven Spielberg. The fact that it [...]

A Tribute, A Triumph, A Tribe

On November 11, 2016, the world was blessed with something it desperately needed: catharsis and healing, packaged in the form of a 16 track album from A Tribe Called Quest titled “We got it from Here… Thank You 4 Your service.” This title is a clear dedication to the recent fallen member of this group, [...]
