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. George gives a hard look at “Lincoln,” “Flight,” “Beasts of the Southern Wild,”and Quentin Tarantino’s “Django,” and the role the men in these movies play and their importance in overarching themes. I definitely suggest sitting down, having a cup of coffee, and taking a look at this NY Times piece.
