Rize is an amazing movie. Its a great look into the experiences of urban youth today. When I saw it, it brought out a mix of emotions; tears, laughter, anger the works. I had to watch it in Manhattan, which pissed me off. The local Brooklyn spots were not showing such a great film that more African Amercan youth and parents should have seen. Rent it or better yet buy it! Rize is worth it.
Hotel Rwanda is a great must see movie. In an eery way the events of Hurricane Katrina remind me of the horrors Blacks went through in Rwanda. In both instances, blacks were denied timely and quality aid because they were poor and publicly thought of as useless to anyone. It's sad that you have to be a commodity to command any form of worth in the eyes of the money hungery and powerful.

Black Scene originally started on msoy online. The official site includes a growing directory of Black Median Links and information about Black Movies, trailers, television shows, cartoons, and animation. I figured a static website just wasn't going to be enough to contain all the new Black Media Content that pops up every day, hence the creation of the Black Scene Blog. Hopefully this place can live up to its name and become a key resource for African Americans who are interested in fiding audio and video content that reflect our interests and issues.
Choice Black Scene Features from the original site:
- African American Movie Trailers
- African American Television: Sitcoms and Dramas
- Watch Black Films Online
- Watch Black Films On the Go!
