Nina Mae McKinney- The Black Independent Movie Star
19 April 2003 | by (Michigan) – See all my reviews

My interest for this movie was because of Nina Mae McKinney. The movie is boring without her in the scenes. She keeps the movie watchable with her in it. She sings "When The Dark Became Dawn" which is worth watching for. Jackie Ward is the star of this film, even though Nina gets top billing. Jackie Ward is no younger then 12 or 13, but a good actor and good singer. Nina Mae does some great acting, no stereotype, or dumb talking or acting stupid. The only way Blacks could and show their talent was in Independent Black Movies and be movie stars within their own race, but unknown to other races, and they deserved better. A lot of the films have been hidden, and the history of Black Movies. But a lot of them are starring to get released. Only if Hollywood would of gave Blacks a chance in movies, were they scared Blacks would eclipse the white actors and actresses? I always felt the Black community needed Black stars and pin-up girls. I guess Hollywood felt Blacks couldn't keep a movie audience, that we couldn't act. But if you watch these films you will see differently.
