Get On Up - James Brown Biopic Fail

“Of course I’m hip! I did 8 Mile, I did the Jay Z concert – I’m Black!” ~Brian Grazer

Toussaint_Glover_Cover

The true story of a former slave-turned-Commander of a military revolt, who overthrew Napoleon Bonaparte’s French army, is one that’s exposed Hollywood’s secret parameters in picture-making: Selecting storylines featuring ‘White Heroes’ only. Danny Glover is no stranger to the evident racially-charged protocol, proven to be followed by movie producers. The actor’s directorial plan to bring Toussaint L’Ouverture’s legacy to the silver screen is said be what forced the lid off Tinseltown’s illusion of liberalism. That’s why Glover, a human rights activist, remains relentlessly dedicating his efforts to tell one of the most significant untold stories of our time: ‘Toussaint.’ Continue Reading…
