This film is a beautiful legacy. It sheds light on a very gifted man who, like many creative people, was raised under difficult circumstances in an underserved area of Pittsburgh. All of his plays were "doors" into the black experience, and from many eras of the American story.
At the darkest times in segregated America, I could read any issue of Jet or Ebony and feel content that blacks -- that I -- could still excel in any human endeavor. Happy thoughts, cheer and optimism filled the pages.
To relieve your stress and assist in selecting the perfect gift, I enlisted a few of my fabulous girlfriends including; Star Jones, Vanessa Bell Calloway, Kym Gold, LaTanya Richardson Jackson, Sunny Hostin, Dr. Margena Christian and Peggy VanDeweghe.
Looking at and understanding whole systems is key to creating successful, sustainable innovation, instead of solutions that make Western consumers feel good but do nothing to correct underlying problems.
