Great Film, Good For Education Settings
on January 27, 2006
Hip-hop stars and top entertainers weigh in on one of the most controversal words in the history of language. The N Word is now available on DVD. The "N" word, depending on who says it, can be a term of endearment or a derogatory word. Basically, that is what the film The N Word is about. Entertainers discuss the word. Various entertainers discuss when they were called the N word in the first segment of the film. Up for discussion is also the history of the word. Another interesting subject brought up is whether it's okay for white people to use the friend in a friendly tone. For example, if two black teens call themselves the N word in jest, is it okay for their white friend to use the N Word?
A lot of top talent was tapped for this project.
On the acting side, Whoopi Goldberg, Chris Rock, Jasmine Guy, Cree Summers, Nia Long, Samuel L Jackson, Richard Pryor, Regina King,
On the directing side Brett Ratner, Ice Cube and John Singleton are featured in the film.
On the music side Cee Lo Green, Damon Dash, Ice Cube, Talib Kweli, Quincy Jones, and more.
In addition to the entertainers who participate in the film, many respected educators contribute their insite.
The N Word is a great film and it would be perfect to use in an educational setting. The film includes a great deal of historical film footage.
