She’s Gotta Have It

She’s Gotta Have It
Spike Lee, 1986, 84’

“It’s rare enough that black people are seen in films, but even when we are, it’s always in stereotypical roles of making people laugh, or as singers and dancers. [...] Even the top stars like Eddie Murphy and Richard Pryor never get to have any love interest in their films. How often have you seen a black man and woman kiss on the screen?”
