Phenomenal, but CC will keep it short. Here are 5 gems to inspire Crablings to run to the theater when it’s released:

5. Andre: I need to axe you something

Classmate: If you axe me, then I will bleed.

4. Andre’s discussion with his father on love, abandonment, and pride

3. Kids of all ages describe how they try to “act black” at home yet “act not black” at school

2. Taking friends home when they live in mansions and you…don’t

1. Realizing you weren’t the only one to ever struggle with identity – black, white, or otherwise

Muy proud.

3. This quote:

GP: “Do you feel that as a cultural figure of importance it is part of your responsibility to share what inspires you?”

JZ:“I think it’s every human’s job to inspire others, to feed one another’s senses. Inspiration begets inspiration times infinity. Imagine if the person that was inspired to create the phonograph didn’t share it with the world.”

2. Nice artwork Jay.

1. This tribute to Bey.. Maybe we’ll get some real insight into their love.
