DISTANT RELATIVES

A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots."

Nick Cannon is speaking up about the current state of African-Americans in Hollywood.  He, along with several other Black actors, are tired of movies like “Django Unchained, Lincoln, The Butler and “12 Years a Slave(The list can go on and on).” Within about a year’s time span, these FOUR box office Slave Movies have hit the silver screen … with a fifth reportedly in the making.
"Why don’t they make movies about our African kings & queens? #OurHistory I would love to see a film about Akhenaton and his beautiful wife Queen Nefertiti! Or Cetewayo, a King who was a war hero. Im about to drive to my office RIGHT NOW and start the development! New Hollywood Trend, Black King and Queen films! Starring Black People!!" #NoDisrespectToElizabethTaylor.”
