In the mid-1980s a teenage musician named Eric Bishop went to play piano for the rich white folk outside his hometown of Terrell, Texas. Bishop was driven to the house by a schoolfriend, who was then ordered to wait outside in the car until the recital was over. "I can't have two niggers in my house at the same time," the owner explained.
If living well is the best revenge, then Eric Bishop provides a study in payback. Recast in the role of Hollywood star Jamie Foxx, he has a Grammy for his music and an Oscar for his acting. By rights his latest movie should count as the icing on the cake, in that it's about a freed slave on a mission of reprisal. »
