America's greatest living black actor does MY DINNER WITH ANDRE
Three black intellectuals--one middle-aged, one youngish, one tilting to the right--gather for a Wally-and-Andre-style dinner of ideas. The performance of Bernie Casey, and the level of the conversation, carry you a long way--especially past the hateful business in which white women are dramatically depicted as the Bane of All Things Human.
