Stompin' at the Savoy an excellent movie
Debbie Allen did an awesome job directing this movie. I caught the tale end of it on TV a few years ago. From what I saw this was a great movie. The movie focuses on African Americans migration to New York and the historical Savoy ballroom, among other highlights. I found the short portion I was able to watch very interesting. I would love to see the movie aired again, hopefully this time I will get to view it in its entirety, or find out how I can purchase the movie. Another movie of interest to me is Pinky, which is coming out for sale soon. Pinky deals with an African American girl in the South whose skin color allowed her to pass as a white person. African Americans have made many movies, plays, etc., but they are very hard to find. I would like to see more black movies aired besides the typical pimp, drug dealer movies. African Americans contributed many different forms of art to American society. It would be nice to see black movies not just during Black History Month. For what the 'black star channel' offers is not worth paying for - you see repeats of the same movies. I want variety.
