  • You got to move by 10

    This film bursts with joy. The glory of dancing in the streets and bars of New Orleans would be compelling enough watching, but Buckjumping skillfully shows the power of dance as resilience and resistance in Black lives. Makes you want to get moving, in all the ways.

  • A living history of America by 10

    ..... a story of the America we can be proud of .... told with respect, joy & love. I especially appreciate seeing how the Second Line honors the First People who helped the slaves hide while honoring those who have passed. As long as the ceremonies go on, America just might save her soul.
