When I wrote about the trailer of “Django Unchained” last week I didn’t know that the slave genre may soon replace the servant movie as the next Black thing. Okay, I am being facetious but when read earlier this week that the great actress Alfre Woodard was joining a production called “12 Years A Slave” it did make me wonder. While this new flick is not going to be like Foxx’s latest where the slave (or should I say ex-slave) has the power and the one-liners, it is interesting that Brad Pitt’s production company is adapting it from the autobiography…
Sheila E. still gives her heart and soul in her performances like her set last night in Bonn, Germany. And there is something about seeing a sister play drums with such skill that we have to give her mad props. From “Glamourous Life” to today she’s still giving us rhythms to move to.
