Hello Bosses, I had the pleasure of watching a documentary on the best collection of black cinematography, “Is That Black Enough For You”, https://www.imdb.com/title/tt21438352/?ref_=nv_sr_srsg_2. Blaxploitation movies saved Hollywood from bankruptcy and that is A Fact. Once you see this, you will be proud of who we aspire to be, everyday. The documentary starts from the beginning of black cinematography with the REAL “Oscar”, the incomparable producer, writer, and director, Oscar Micheaux.
Oscar Micheaux (1884–1951) was the most successful black independent filmmaker of the race-movie era. Micheaux wrote, directed, and produced approximately 40 films. A savvy businessman and promoter, he worked directly with theater owners to finance, distribute, and market his films. He explored taboo subjects such as lynching, interracial sex, religious hypocrisy, and color and class prejudice within the African American community.

Black History is American History black people are the very best of America. We are the builders and the true architects, the fiber and the glue of this country, we are Pop Culture, with little effort. America does a lot to discourage us from the truth, that “We The People” are the BOSS of the people that we hire/elect to represent us. We are their BOSSES and we must Boss Up and Manage our employees. I hope you enjoy watching this documentary and that it inspires you and helps you to see our light, beauty, talents, and our strengths. I know why they are so jealous…
Let’s get back to former Mayor Maynard Jackson and John Calhoun’s plan for Atlanta residents and NPUs in my next post as we round out Black American History Month. Please read the attached NPU Profile that was created with growing black community wealth and prosperity in 1978, it was on his mind in his heart, and planned on our behalf, let’s keep his legacy intact.
