If you have a favorite movie that features african-americans as directors, actors, writers or producers that are not on this list, what would it be?

I love EVE'S BAYOU (1997) and Maya Angelou's DOWN IN THE DELTA (1998).

I would have added both of them. They deserve to be seen and appreciated.

These are just about my favorite movies of all time. If ever caught mid movie, I always get sucked in.

I'm amazed at what's NOT included. Maybe I'll understand after hearing the host elaborate on the spotlight.
