Film Talk on Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom
Ma Rainey's Black Bottom is a 2020 American drama film directed by George C. Wolfe and written by Ruben Santiago-Hudson, based on the play of the same name by August Wilson. The film, and its source play, focus on an influential blues singer, and dramatizes a turbulent recording session in 1920s Chicago. We ask that you watch the movie prior to this event, which can be viewed on Netflix. If you would like to learn more about the research that went into the film and the themes of the play, we encourage you to view the accompanying segment called Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom: “A Legacy Brought to Life” Please reach out to the church office if you are not able to see this film on Netflix or if you have any further questions.
