In the wake of her #InaugurationDay poem reading, 22-year old poet Amanda Gorman's two books Change Sings and The Hill We Climb are already in the No. 1 and No. 2 spots on Amazon’s bestseller list

And the books don’t hit shelves until September

Ta-Nehisi Coates was the first writer I knew who laid out the definitive case as to why Donald Trump is a white supremacist. His piece was firmly in my mind when I called Trump a white supremacist in 2017. Ta-Nehisi’s piece today on Trump is a must read:

Quoted @Screenplayed

Although she receives no screenwriting credit for Selma (2014), director @Ava rewrote 90% of Paul Webb's original script, including writing all of King's speeches. #MLKDay

Here’s the difference, folks.

When Colin Kaepernick speaks out against racial injustice, no team will sign him.

When Josh Hawley gets dropped for helping incite an insurrection, he lands another book deal in less than 2 weeks.

This is what white privilege looks like.

Just finished @ava’s Selma. If you haven’t watched it yet it’s a must. I’m not sure I fully understood just how much the FBI was trying to silence Black civil rights leaders until seeing this film.

Rewatched @ava’s #Selma & I encourage all to view. It’s so soul stirring, especially with the Capital insurrection & #Trump administration as a backdrop.

Films like Selma are so damn important! You see the power of protest...

Here is #Selma director @ava on what the name Martin Luther King Jr. means to her. I've always loved what she says here - about who he was as a man and about the power of non-violence. Terrific film by a great director - watch it today wherever you rent movies.

Just pressed play on @ava’s “Selma.”
Her vision, David’s interpretation, Bradford’s eye, Spencer’s choices... this is an exceptional film.

“Selma it is.”

Don’t get me started on the rest of the ensemble: Colman, Tessa, Common, Oprah, Carmen, Lorraine, Tom, and Dylan.

Superb.

Quoted @franklinleonard

A few years later, @mccandelish/@infobeautiful conducted his own study, exploring “based on a true story” films scene-by-scene, beat-by-beat, testing their veracity on a data level.

The most true film... wait for it...

On this MLK Day, let us also remember that @ava’s Selma is the most historically accurate film in recent memory.

Today’s the day if you haven’t already . SELMA has to be streaming somewhere. @ava and team didn’t drop us a seminal historic film to just have it washed away. The work stands there to show us that these times were not so long ago.
