Black Is Beautiful

While venturing out earlier today in the middle on old Macau, China I came across this little cinema with their featured showcase “Black Is Beautiful”. This showcase is highlighting popular but impactful movies starring and directed by black people from the 1970s-present day.
Movies: Do The Right Thing, Blackkklansman, Losing Ground, If Beale Street Could Talk, Killer of Sheep, Daughters of the Dust, Fruitvale Station, An Oversimplification of Her Beauty, Chameleon Street and Sorry to Bother You.
This made my day. Since being here I’ve been getting awkward stares from locals that probably never encountered a black person in person before wanting to touch my hair or think I just got off the plane from Africa. Knowing there is a group of people here trying to get our beautiful message across.
