Black Girl In The City.


A MUST SEE!

“PRECIOUS”

PUSHH

This story hits home in a lot of ways and is definitely on my film list for fall. Although I think they should have stuck with the original title “Push”, the lesson still sells itself. Based on the novel written by Sapphire, this film has already captured the Sundance Festival’s Grand Jury, Audience and Special Jury Awards.

About the Movie: Clareece “Precious” Jones is an overweight, illiterate African-American teen in Harlem. Just as she’s about to give birth to her second child, Jones is accepted into an alternative school where a teacher helps her find a new path in her life. Drops this November.

*The book is on Amazon for about $8 bucks.

Yes that book IS amazing. I read it years ago and I think its wonderful that Sundance picked it up. It’s something our young ladies need to see definitely

THIS WAS ACTUALLY THE FIRST ADULT CONTENT BOOK I READ (9TH GRADE=2000). LOVED IT… I THINK THEY SHOULDVE STUCK WITH THE ORIGINAL TITLE THOUGH!!!
