Black History Movie Friday: Alex Haley's Queen


Alex Haley's Queen is a miniseries adaptation of the 1993 Alex Haley/David Stevens novel Queen: The Story of an American Family, directed by John Erman and starring Halle Berry in the title role. The film tells the life story of a young slave girl named Queen, and illustrates the problems faced by bi-racial slaves in America. Throughout her life Queen struggles to fit into the two cultures of her heritage, and is at times shunned by both.
The story is based on the life of Haley's paternal grandmother Queen.
This is a very good family movie to watch!
