The movie centers around the portrayal of two very different Black characters, one from the street and one from the elite, who are both shown to be completely credible professionals. One of them is a graduate of Harvard, played by Brian White. The other character is from the street, had to go to Mexico to get his degree, and is played Wood Harris, who is best known for being the drug dealer Avon Barksdale on THE WIRE.
This blog and others argue for the need to have more movies written and focused on the African American experience on the big screen. Not every movie is going to be destined for the Academy Awards ... but, that is a'ight. We still need to have more opportunities for Black folks in the movies. For that reason ... I want to ensure that all 'villagers' are aware of this particular movie!
