Black on Black Cinema

Quincy Jones and Getting Old and Black and Preview to Episode 124

February 16, 2018

The guys have decided to toss away their previous movie choice and jump right in and handle the likely biggest Black film in the last 10 years and probably for the next 10, Black Panther. The first comic book movie that has ever been done on the show, but a timely and important one. Marvel's latest film isn't just a run of the mill action adventure (though those elements are there), but there is an undercurrent of Blackness that runs through the film that it deserved the Black on Black Cinema full treatment. The preview topic this week is all about Quincy Jones' interview with Vulture in which he spills the beans on Michael Jackson, Marlon Brando, Ivanka Trump, Richard Pryor, Marvin Gaye, and many others. We also get into how freeing it is to be old and Black.
