Troy Carmichael is I : I is Troy Carmichael
If you know me you know that @officialspikelee "Crooklyn" is my favorite ( even though favorite is an understatement) movie. When I first saw this movie I instantly saw myself in Troy. From the way she looked, her thick hair, her demeanor, and especially being the only girl in the family. Seeing a black family that resembled mine in a movie was lit. Now that I'm an adult I can relate to this movie in a whole new light. •••
Fun fact: When I was a little girl I grew up with my brothers and older uncles. When my brothers and I would go over my grandmas house and my uncles would watch us, I would be so bored being the only girl I would call my mom and beg her to pick me up and end up going to work with her when she worked at Red Roof inn
Movies like Crooklyn, Brown Sugar, The Best Man, Two Can Play that Game, Soul Food, and black cinema in that era in general played a huge part in my life.
Anyway @officialspikelee when you're ready to bring the character Troy back look no further, she is me #troycarmichael #spikelee #crooklyn #blackcinema #melaninqueen #mamablues #poetry #mymelaninisbeautiful #spikeleejoint #40acres
