There are a few movies that I think most American Black millennials have a shared connection to from our childhoods because of our parents and lazy Saturdays. The Jacksons: An American Dream, The Temptations (which LOL is actually a mini-series but it was always aired back to back so we all just consider it a movie AND I always have to say this fun fact but Eddie Kendricks and my paternal grandfather were cousins!) Soul Food, The Color Purple, and 1993’s What’s Love Got To Do With It.
