Movie Screening: Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom

A film adaptation of August Wilson’s play, set in 1927 Chicago, pays an affectionate tribute to the blues legend and Black culture. The 2020 film was produced by Denzel Washington, featuring Viola Davis, who plays the influential blues singer May Rainey and the late Chadwick Boseman (his final film appearance), who portrayed Ma Rainey’s trumpet player. https://sunyrockland.edu/event/movie-screening-ma-raineys-black-bottom/
