Last week, Animata escaped to a black ghetto town in New York – Canvas Town – at the same time as the American Revolution broke out in New York. Her escape from Solomon Lindo was assisted by an influential Black innkeeper named Sam Fraunces (Cuba Gooding Jr.)
The acting and production elements continue to amaze and mesmerize me. No stone or pebble is left unturned. How refreshing it is to see actors, producers, writers, audio-visual specialists and musicians so committed to their vision for this film. It is a masterpiece of a movie, deserving of accolades and awards aplenty. Bravo!
This week, in light of the British defeat, Aminata registers Black Loyalists in The Book Of Negroes for an escape to freedom in Nova Scotia. Now we are getting to crux of the story. This should be a very good episode.
Congratulations to the producers, the writers, the technical staff, the musicians, the actors and everyone involved with this remarkable mini-series. You should be proud.
And, as always, a special shout-out to the Associate Producer, Justin Giallonardo – my nephew , for his hard work and artistic contribution to this series. We are so thrilled for you and very proud.
However, check your TV listings. One station actually aired the show at 8:00 PM last week.
