Their Eyes Were Watching God [Full Movie] | #OYRchallenge

Youtube review:

“Their Eyes Were Watching God(2005):

Sassy Janie Starks looks unlike to get anywhere in pre-Great War Easton, Florida, but lands the best colored catch, lively shopkeeper Joe Starks, who even becomes town mayor. However her refusal to oblige his expectations of decency turn love into bitterness. After his death, she prefers to enjoy ‘freedom’ again, with cocky outsider ‘Tea Cake’ as playmate, and not just at chess. They even face the risks of seasonal labor. “

Black Stereotypes Debunked in Thought-Provoking Sequel -Hoodwinked PUM Film Review by Kam Williams

 

 The movie opens with a confrontational quote from Malcolm X, “Who taught you to hate yourself?” before Janks launches into a series of impromptu, man-in-the-street interviews where he asks brothers and sisters to name some positive stereotypes about black people. Most struggle to come up with even one, which prompts Dr. Hill to surmise that blacks have internalized white supremacy.
