At The Root on the 25th Anniversary of Daughters of the Dust

dotdDaughters of the Dust is one of the best films of the ’90s.  Directed by Julie Dash, it broke new ground esthetically and racially (it was the first feature film directed by an African American woman) then it disappeared.  It’s 25th Anniversary is being celebrated with a new 2K print and a reissue that begins at Film Forum on November 18.

I spoke to Dash, Nelson George and Greg Tate about the film last week for the Root.

About jmartin437

I've worked in and around the world of high end cheese for 27 years. I've been everything from a department manager who hired and fired and trained staffs to a weekend warrior who shows up ties on an apron the middle of a rush and talks to customers and cleans up the place. I enjoy it all, and I especially like my current situation conducting informal seminars about cheese at area bars and in class at the 92nd St. Y. The current schedule is always up at thejoyofcheese.blogspot.com. In addition I conduct private events that are perfect to lead off birthday parties for foodies and sommeliers and also they make great entertainment for corporate team building events and associates meetings at law firms. In addition, I've been a freelance journalist for 27 years. Currently my profiles of leading musicians and filmmakers appear in the Wall Street Journal and www.theroot.com. I also wrote about sports for the Root, and for five loooong years, which included the entirety of the Isiah Thomas Knicks era, I wrote about the NBA for the New York Sun. I enjoyed writing about basketball so much that I now do it here at rotations for free.
