The film just dropped, so it missed SilverDocs here in DC/Silver Spring at the American Film Institute. Nevertheless, it's is opening in major film festivals this summer and will hit like a Rivera fastball on a batter covering home plate to closely. What happens when one African American girl aspires to take the Homecoming Queen crown of the University of Alabama. That slot has been controlled for over a century by a cadre of frats and sororities on campus known as "The Machine," which ensures the title only goes to the sweetest magnolia blossom, with her pink cheeks and supposedly Christian values (until Spring Break in Mobile or Panama City, then, Lord, here cometh the stinky pinky?) This wasn't 1968. This is now. New wounds, old wounds. Surprising attitudes, even from our folk. Hell, perhaps even the black football players. Yep--all them brothas recruited for the Crimson Tide. Read Forty Million Dollar Slaves for how those negroes roll. Pretty white girls as recruitment meat. Yum...
So check out the documentary film's site and the trailers. Nothing yet on Youtube. Will keep you posted. ROOOOOLLLLLL TIDE!!!
Looks like it will be in Atlanta first?
Did Chris really write "stinking pinky" in a blog?
It still feels like proving a thing.
I want inner searching!
Tired of proving other's wrong doing and Statements like - "I" am Human too!.
I need NOT to beg to be accepted, I just be!
Good stuff, Chris. Got you linked.
I'm assuming this will play at Sundance and then no one else will see it.
Pretty white girls as recruitment meat
Why do you think the white girls are the ones who are recruitment meat ?
Had to de-lurk for this one--thanks for the info. I'll certainly be checking it out if we get it our direction.
Love your blog BTW.
