For Colored Girls: The PROMO Posters

Yesterday I posted Janet’s promo for Tyler Perry’s film production of “For Colored Girls.”  I will refrain from the political for personal reasons as I am glad to see so many black actresses WORKING!  Quantity versus Quality – I don’t know but if it’s a vibe thing – and you can feel me – then you know what it is.  (I personally think a black female director might have been a more appropriate choice – just saying – okay I couldn’t help myself.)

Damn it Kerry, give me another huge reason to see this.  I know you’re gonna KILL it.

Kimberly, where have you been?  Doesn’t she look like a young Cicely Tyson?

Hmmm…Thandie.  I hear she got the role after Mariah pulled out.

Anika Noni Rose?  An actual Tony Award winning, classically trained, theatrical actress?  Okay, that should totally work.

Whoopie hasn’t been on the silver screen in a minute.  Long as she keeps her mouth shut on the controversial company she keeps (google her comments on Roman Polanski and Mel Gibson – smdh) and she’ll be alright with me.

Loretta Devine.  There will be lot’s of acting going on.

Ms. Phylicia Rashad sealed the deal for me. 

I’m sure these Ladies will be able to turn this production into something we call can be proud of.

    Enjoyed your comments and agree with just about all of them. It would have been nice for Tyler to hire a Black female director for this project. There is certainly plenty for him to pick from. I think he feels he has something to prove after the criticism he as received around Precious and his Madea films. Hiring a woman director would have been the best way to show he is more concerned about making good art instead of trying to pump his ego up.

      Thank you for your comments! I agree with you that Perry seems to be searching for some type of aesthetic relevancy and mainstream recognition – especially in light of his films featuring Madea and his chit-lun circuit road shows. If he really care about artistic license while tackling the issues of black women, he would transfer said license to a woman of color to direct “For Colored Girls.”
