Could not love Oprah more for this critique of the struggle between the work of the Civil Rights workers of yesteryear and our evolved young men in the present. She uses the roles of Cecil (father and Butler) and Louis (son and young activist) to explain how both Harry Belafonte and Jay Z complete their roles as activist. Harry Belafonte through his marches and protest; and Jay Z through his music and other works. They were both right, she says. Jay Z is the example of our evolution, which was destined to be in light of Harry Belafonte’s struggle. Glorious.
We sat down with Ms. Winfrey to get her views on the movie’s father/son conflict, and how this generational disconnect continues to play out with the recent clash of ideals between Jay Z and Harry Belafonte
