  • This powerful trilogy of films, produced by HBO, deals with the black experience in America in a variety of settings. In THE BOY WHO PAINTED CHRIST, directed by Bill Duke, an elementary school principal (Wesley Snipes) whose career is moving forward faces a painful choice when a student at his school paints a portrait for a competition of Jesus Christ as a black man. LONG BLACK SONG deals with a poor sharecropper (Danny Glover) whose bored wife flirts with a white salesman while he's out at work. In THE REUNION, Lorraine Toussaint plays a successful jazz singer in Chicago in 1958. She has an emotional encounter that brings back painful memories of growing up a servant's daughter in a wealthy white home. The three shorts are all notable for the direct and honest way they deal with the complexities of black life in America during the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s.
