I have many but at this time my first thought would be Spike Lee's epic of the Life of Malcolm X, it was so informative and Denzel Washington was so real and took on the role of Malcolm like a hand to a glove. I was involved from start to finish. A Masterpeice of film.
At this time I remember watching Independence Day with Will Smith and although some fo the script was a bit cheesy. The cinematic effects was a great experience.
I enjoy writing and have contributed to a published Hair Anthology. I also enjoy travel, particularly to Africa. My first visit was to Nigeria, then to Senegal and Gambia, then Zimbabwe and finally working with street children in Cameroon. I would love to visit North Africa Morocco and Kenya for East Africa and ulitmate journey's would be to Egypt and Ethiopia. I love music and dancing in my front room is always special. I love music from all corners of the world reggae the best as this is from my parents island of birth and it is a genre of music that as travelled and influenced many across the globe. In my quiet moments I enjoy listening to Nina Simone and Curtis Mayfield and for a full heartbeat dance exercise Thomas Mafumo and Baaba Maal. I love walking in my local partk and other green spaces enjoying nature. I am employed and give thanks for that, I however would love to spend more time relaxing and volunteering working with young people especially teenage parents.
I am a 50 plus African-Caribbean women, a mother of 3 grown children and a recent grandmother. I love film, theatre and anything that demonstrates life, love and living.
