Warm, moving
24 June 2001 | by (Maryland) – See all my reviews

I taped this movie on PBS about a month or so ago. I just watched it last night. It was such a warm and moving film, the kind that pulls you into the time setting. The dynamics of the sisters were wonderful, and you could feel the hope, anger, dashed dreams of all of the characters. It was interesting, also, to learn what the title meant. If you understand and are interested in the zeitgeist of the Harlem Renaissance, it will be very interesting viewing
