Nice! You know I’ll be there! It’s only fitting that Nelson George is delivering the keynote address for this; if you recall my conversation with him several weeks ago on the S&A Livecast, we talked very specifically (as he certainly seemed very passionate and chock-full of interesting tidbits) about this “golden era” of black cinema in the USA - a “movement” we could say that Nelson was very much a part of.
