What does Black mean? Anthony Lennon, Talawa and British Black artistic history
= = = = = = = = = =
The pressure to comment and react is huge in 2018. The wont to be a part of the conversation comes before thinking about whether we should.
.
Because TBB doesn’t have a relationship with Anthony Lennon or know too much about the situation outside of anecdotal opinions for and against him, we’re not jumping in too deep.
.
.
What we are actually more excited about is the resurfacing of a brilliant episode of the BBC 1 series #Everyman featuring an all-black cast and Lennon, playing themselves in a scripted programme about what it’s like to be black in the UK. Lennon is seen here telling his friends about his heritage.
.
.
The challenge here is for all of us British, Black and in the arts to know our history. Understand the people who came before us, right here in the UK. If this is where we’re calling home, then let’s understand what our people did to lay the groundwork for why we even have a Talawa in the first place.

Maybe if we could get a stranglehold on our back story, we wouldn’t be so easily distracted, infiltrated, and misinformed?

= = = = = = = = = =
Though Ms. Coel has been on our screens for a while Been So Long is her debut as a lead in a feature film. .

In Been So Long Coel plays single mother 'Simone' whose heart has been broken, to the point she's fearful of love and trusting again. When Raymond (Arinze Kene) walks into her life, fresh after a stint in prison, Simone is challenged to find hope.
.
Captivating the screen, with a revolutionary look, charm and wit, Coel's yin to Kene's yang gives a vision of a love story we can believe in.

"Been So Long is an enjoyable experience; the hopeful trigger for more creative millennial British narratives, the wake-up call for more three-dimensional black love on our screens (with opportunities for dark-skinned women) and the continuance of a flourishing career for Michaela Coel, Arinzé Kene, and the brilliant supporting cast."

Showing as part of this year's BFI London Film Festival, In Fabric, directed by Peter Strickland is 'a haunting ghost story set against the backdrop of a busy winter sales period in a department store, following the life of a cursed dress as it passes from person to person, with devastating consequences'.

Oscar-nominated, Jean-Baptiste plays 'Sheila', a recently divorced mother of one son, who is hopefully looking for love. Vulnerably played, Jean-Baptiste has been cast in a role, and a film not usually the domain of black women actresses. .

One thing which strongly defines Been So Long's specialness, is seeing Michaela Coel's 'Simone', with her shorn head as the leading love interest and having Arinze Kene's 'Raymond' say to Simone, "You're frickin' gorgeous" whilst pursuing her in a way we don't often see someone like Raymond pursuing someone who looks like Simone on screen.

Ellis Haizlip was the host and executive producer of SOUL!, the first “black Tonight Show.”

Launched in 1968 in the midst of the Civil Rights movement, Haizlip produced over 130 hour-long episodes of SOUL! Featuring iconic guests: #SidneyPoitier #HarryBelafonte #JamesBaldwin #StevieWonder #MayaAngelou #AshfordandSimpson #NikkiGiovanni #AlGreen #MuhammadAli -- even a sixteen-year-old #ArsenioHall doing magic tricks.

In our current climate of reclaiming our narrative, SOUL! was groundbreaking. Haizlip was innovative, political and gay. Determined to fight for liberation and acceptance through cultural expression.
