Daughters Of The Dust 25th Anniversary Screenings

Julie Dash’s Daughters Of The Dust is having its 25th anniversary and just had a highly publicized restoration by the Cohen Media Group.  The movie is screening around the country in celebration of the anniversary. Beyonce’s Lemonade visuals referenced Dash’s film and made it re-enter pop culture. Dash’s feature set in the early part of the 20th century about the life and culture of the Gullah Peazant family was the first film from an African-American woman to get a wide release.

Is Pete Rock right about so-called Mumble Rappers “not respecting the culture” and being weak rappers?

Did Beyonce finance the restoration of Julie Dash’s Daughters Of The Dust because of how it inspired her Lemonade visual album?


Is Donald Glover’s Atlanta the next big music-oriented television show?
