The Sauda Voice believes that many of you do! Ironically, the term "blacklist" or "blacklisted" is defined as a list or register of persons who, for one reason or another, are being denied a particular privilege, service, mobility, access or recognition (Source: Wikipedia). If this is not a fitting term to describe the experience of African-Americans in this country then I don't know what is.
Portrait photographer/filmmaker Timothy Greenfield-Sanders and NPR radio host, journalist and former New York Times film critic Elvis Mitchell have turned the term "blacklist" on its head with their HBO Documentary Film The Black List, Volume One. As filmmakers, Greenfield-Sanders and Mitchell give us a glimpse into the diverse and beautiful world of blackness and achievement through the words of many of our modern greats (from a wide array of fields, including theater, sports, activism, music, and politics).
The Sauda Voice highly recommends The Black List! It is currently airing on HBO. To find out upcoming airtimes, see full schedule.
