Black movies are making a huge impact this year. Black male actors have plummetted our movie screens with movies like '12 Years A Slave', 'Fruitvale Station', and as of late 'Best Man: Holiday. I am impressed, and the movie world is deffinately experiencing a shift on what types of roles Black people are being allowed to play. Granted a lot of the movies have been racially driven, but it is deffinately an upward march towards broadcasting Black males in a positive light.

A movie I can't wait to see this month is Nelson Mandela's autobiography ' Mandela: Long Walk To Freedom, played by gorgeos man Idris Elba, who is taken now ladies. lol. Winnie Mandela is also played by Naomie Harris. With the recent passing of this powerful leader it is wonderful that we all will get to see his testimony and hard work on film. Idris explains what it was like to work on the movie at Jet Magazine this month.

“I didn’t feel like I was accomplished enough to play such a great man,” said Elba when referencing what it was like to portray Mandela. “It was a massive challenge. He could energize people with his charisma and aura. I tried to channel that. I want people to be inspired by his story.”
