View Full Version : did you see it on tv?

yesterday I watched the movie on tv, "the Delaney sisters, having our say"
did anyone see it?
I had read the book a few years ago.
I thought it was a good movie.
just wondered what others thought?
I think it is just awful the way african americans were treated for so long.
also, has anyone read that book, black like me? my nephew was reading it once, and I had never heard of it, so then I read it.

Course I didn't see the movie MMC- being over here - but I wondered who wrote the book - I wouldn't mind reading it and having a full name will make finding it so much easier.

I realize that not everyone in the world saw it, but I am sure they have movies on tv there?
anyway, it was about the Delaney sisters, I don't think it would be that hard to look up. anyway I will find out and let you know,
all you had to do was ask..I will post it in a few minutes

I remember reading "Black Like Me" years ago in school. A classic that everyone should read sometime in their lives. Missed the movie though.:( Maybe it's on tape/DVD

yes , I'm sure it is on tape, I know the movie had been on tv before, a few years ago.

Thanks so much for the links MaryMC - now I've got the authors full name I'll be able to get hold of it over here - like to read the book before I see the film!

I think it's awful that blacks are STILL treated like crap. :(

I'm sure they are, but, I meant the way they had no rights long ago, like having to ride in the back of the bus, use separate drinking fountains, etc etc. it is just so unbelievable to me that went on!

MMC - just to let you know I've ordered the book from Amazon in UK - they had it! So I'm looking forward to it's arrival and a good read. Thanks.
