Movie with an African-American MAIN character?
Topic: The sisters movie free
June 24, 2019 / By Eliphaz Question:
A guy friend brought this upon me yesterday at out lockers. After the inauguration and all, I guess he was thinking about segregation and freedoms that blacks do and do not have.
He challenged me to come up with a movie where the main character is black. To my surprise, I couldn't think of one! All I thought about was 'Jump In' but that's Disney...not really what I call a real movie.
So I'd like to challenge the people of Yahoo!Answers to do the same. Come up with a movie where the main character was African-American. You can probably think of some much more easily than I can, hahah.
ps. if you think I'm being racist in any way, PLEASE read the question again and realize that I'm simply asking a question. I'm not saying it's a good thing I can't come up with any movies. I actually think it's pretty bad considering the fact that this is now a free nation and America still has it's flaws.
Boy, do I feel stupid!
I can't believe I didn't come up with some of those.
WILL SMITH! DAM!
I'm so stupid.

Originally Answered: Do you think that the main theme of The Color Purple is about the struggle of African American women?
I'd say it's about how the struggle makes them grow in strength, and about how in fact, the women are much stronger than the men, even though the men have all the power.
I think a good thesis statement would be something along the lines of "Suffering teaches the women strength and survival."
You could use examples like her originally living with her father and then going on to live with Mister, and how that changes her, then how it changes her when she's forced to go and work for the mayor's wife, but also other woman in the story and their destiny.

Any movie with Will Smith. "I Am Legend" and "Hancock" come to mind. "Glory" was a movie about the first black regiment in the Civil War. Morgan Freeman and Danzel Washington were in that one.
