I did not think my thoughts on ‘The Color Purple‘ and ‘Beloved‘ films were all that important or profound, but that is why we write. Others need to hear what we are thinking or affirm their thoughts through our words, and decide the meaning and weight for themselves. Actually, my essay on the two films forked off from a standard list I did on black women’s film adaptations and became a work of its own. The combination of the two was getting far too long.
BlogHer.com liked my thoughts enough to feature them in the Entertainment section this past Thursday. It just goes to show you how important it is to keep with your promises to write and believe others will always read. Happy writing!
