Nelson George Looks at the Development and Prominent Role Black Characters Play at this Year’s Oscars

In a in-depth and well written article, author and filmmaker Nelson George looks at the significance of black male characters in some of 2012’s most heralded films.

I definitely suggest sitting down, having a cup of coffee, and taking a look at this NY Times piece.
