“Red Tails” - MOVIE ABOUT TUSKEGEE AIRMEN

For all you movie buffs. Please help get the word out.

Red Tails is George Lucas' version of the story of the Tuskegee Airmen, 20 years in the making, and has a predominantly Black cast, certainly all the main actors are Black, including Cuba Gooding, Jr. and Terrence Howard.

As it goes, when the movie was finally ready for production, no production company would take it, so George Lucas had to write a check. After production was completed, no distribution company would take it. So, George Lucas had to write another check. The advanced viewing was sponsored by Wells Fargo and the Museum for Black History Diaspora (not sure of the exact name).

The movie is intriguing and has edge-of-your-seat action. It's well done, and certainly worth the look.

I'm urging all of you to see this movie, and tell others about it as well. Anything we can do to ensure large numbers of viewers in the first few days of release, scheduled for 20 Jan 2012, will make a statement to the production and distribution companies that were not interested in this film for whatever reasons, that they made a miscalculation.

If each of you tells as many people about this as you can, and attempt to take 4 or 5 people with you to see the film, that will be like a geometric progression, and could potentially push the numbers off the chart.

And . . . George can get his money back!
