"Whenever I use BLACK it relates to some history of Africans in that particular place. It’s the idea of the color BLACK as a metaphor, or as a representation of African-Americans. It’s the notion of BLACK- BLACKNESS - and all its other meanings in relation to the history of race..."

- Fred Wilson

"Most of my fortitude to continue doing the work comes from the moral outrage I feel about the injustices that Black people endure disproportionately daily."

- N. Abdul-Wakil

"In the end, what matters is not skin shade but pan-African consciousness. Loving your complexion, your nose, lips, hair length and texture, no matter what the politics or trends decide, and simply be. That's the problem with us (African folks). We're still learning how to love ourselves. So used to glorifying others and putting others first..."

“Chocolate Babies” (1997)

When a band of HIV-positive African American drag queens have had enough of patronizing activists and politicians, they launch an underground terror campaign to fight for justice. Writer-director Stephen Winter's scathingly funny and tender feature debut hits like a hand grenade, demolishing independent film conventions as thoroughly as the political marginalization and complacency that are its main targets.

Producer: Jason Kliot, Joana Vicente.
Screenwriter: Stephen Winter.
Editor: Francisco Macias.

  1. I will look forward to when it screens here in NYC

  2. Hey Greg,

    I totally agree with you. Being that I reside in New York City, I'd like to see a screening here as well.

    My former lover has an original pre-recorded VHS tape of Chocolate Babies that he showed me years ago (his favorite film) and that was the only time I saw the film.

    Also, I had a conversation with actor (and friend) Bryan Webster (who played Councilman Melvin Freeman) and he tells me writer/director Stephen Winter is trying to work on a DVD release of the film. So let's really hope that happens as well.

    Thanks for stopping by Nubian Knights Network, Greg.
