In a recent DJ Vlad interview, Charlamagne spoke about his thoughts on “12 Years a Slave” winning the Oscar for “Best Picture,” saying that he’s done with slave movies. Said Charlamagne,
“We’re more than that.”
Charlamagne also spoke about the lack of support in the world for other darker skinned women in entertainment besides actress Lupita N’yongo.
Take a look in the video below!
We certainly see the value in “12 Years A Slave” and can totally grasp the reasons why we sometimes need to remember our past in order not to forget it completely or not to fool ourselves into thinking others don’t still view us as less than. But at the same time, we also understand what Charlamagne means when he says that we have had enough slave movies…and enough of seeing ourselves depicted that way. There truly are more stories than the handful we are constantly told over and over again. We hope Hollywood agrees.
