Saw this one weeks ago and was underwhelmed by the narratives against Black men and actually a lot of what it portrayed for Walker wasn’t even true.

Somewhat of a disappointment because it fails to make Walker into the dynamic women she was and falsely portrayed her life with her daughter who actually did have children and was not a lesbian.  Haddish was also miscast in the role she played.

The revisionist history that is taking place with iconic Black figures is intentional and is being used to push agendas through the media.
