    I could watch James Baldwin talk and read the shit out of White filmmakers for hours. ❤️

    Wow, this was so so good. Just pure excellence all around! 😭

    Honestly, big ups to Netflix for backing films like this, “Homecoming” and “Dolemite is My Name”. We need more of these and less films like “Queen and Slim” and “Harriet” right now. There is so much more to Black life than pain and struggle and it’s lovely when our films reflect that. ❤️
