Black History Month.

In 1973 a South Africa film “Joe Bullet” was banned after being screen twice at a cinema in Soweto. The banning order cited, among other issues, the portrayal of a black man with a gun, driving a nice car and living in a nice apartment.
The film was unbanned after special appeal, but it was never released…well that’s until now, the film will be screened to an American audience at the Cinema Detroit next week.
With Black history month taking place in the U.S and now a South African film making it’s premier for the U.S audience, it is a great move to celebrate black excellence.
