The Senator and the Socialite: The True Story of America's First Black Dynasty by Lawrence Otis Graham

"Blanche Kelso Bruce was born a slave in 1841, yet, remarkably, amassed a real-estate fortune and became the first black man to serve a full term in the U.S. Senate. He married Josephine Willson—the daughter of a wealthy black Philadelphia doctor—and together they broke down racial barriers in 1880s Washington, D.C., numbering President Ulysses S. Grant among their influential friends. The Bruce family achieved a level of wealth and power unheard of for people of color in nineteenth-century America. Yet later generations would stray from the proud Bruce legacy, stumbling into scandal and tragedy.

Drawing on Senate records, historical documents, and personal letters, author Lawrence Otis Graham weaves a riveting social history that offers a fascinating look at race, politics, and class in America."

Latest Flicks / The Accountant
« on: October 17, 2016, 09:41:28 am »
John Wick, The Equalizer and The Accountant are now the modern day trinity of the action sub group- ordinary dull looking person who really has extraordinary skills at killing people for a just cause. Each movie provided a bit of nuance to the premise- John Wick gave stylish combat and grand world building; Equalizer was about brutal precision and now the Accountant went one step further to give a heartfelt actioner. Trust me as parent you are going to get the message that is left for you to interpret at the end of the Accountant.

The supporting cast was remarkable to me since I went into the movie only knowing that Ben Affleck was in it and to see quality actors fill up the supporting roles was a pleasant surprise.

Kudos to the sound effects team and the director for work that they did with the gun battle in the final act of the movie.  The sound of those gun shots can rival the work done in the movie Heat where there was a gun battle in the streets and it felt like you were literally there.

I endorse this movie, go see it.

Latest Flicks / Jason Bourne

No doubt Jason Bourne eats Alpha and Bravo teams for breakfast with his combat skills but the next movie should leave out this type of action set piece because it has lost the 'wow' factor.

As for the current movie, it digs up a story 'aspect' from the original novel and uses it as the focal point of Bourne's emotional motivation throughout the film. The other characters are well acted by the cast, Tommy Lee Jones in particular.

Overall the film is a nice thriller.

Hard Choices / Canibus or Ras Kass
« on: March 12, 2012, 11:05:28 am »
Prof. Canibus knocked us out with “Second Round K.O” , had us wondering “what if the South had won?”  on “How Come” from the Bulworth’s movie soundtrack and had us hooked to every line of “100 Bars”. He has touched on aliens, high science and conspiracy theories.

Dr. Ras Kass delivered a thesis on the “Nature of the Threat” followed by one on God. His raps on world history should be mandatory listening.

Which of the two hardcore emcees is your favorite?
