Film Review; Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom. Film Review; Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.

(Akiit.com) Who’s the Mother of the Blues? Better say Ma Rainey! 1927. It’s a steamy Chicago summer, just like the rest. Hot. Humid. Even the streets are sweating. Ma (Viola Davis) comes up from Georgia to Chi-town to make an album. Her quartet arrives before she does, practicing in a cramped recording studio rehearsal room. Cutler (Colman Domingo, If Beale Street Could Talk), the so-called bandleader,... [Read more of this review]


Americans, What More Can We Expect? Americans, What More Can We Expect?

(Akiit.com) As I write today, our nation has reached significant milestones, which in their differences are connected. We’ve experienced the loss of a QUARTER OF A MILLION Americans to COVID-19. We’ve moved toward a total infection rate of 12 million. This upswing in the disease has overburdened and threatens to break our healthcare system. Under the weight of COVID, many hospitals are unable... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) It took five days for the 2020 election to be called for former Vice President Joe Biden. Five days with me peeled to the television and the internet. Five days holding my breath. Five days, meditating and praying for strength. I could not imagine four more years of Trump. I actually started going through my belongings, trying to decide which one would make the cut for my move to Ghana... [Read more of this review]


Americans; A Time to Heal? Americans; A Time to Heal?

(Akiit.com) Joe Biden spoke of it during his victory-claiming, Saturday night speech. Time Magazine has now made it their new front cover. It is, we are being told, “time to heal.” But will it be that easy? And can a party with strong, radical elements lead the way in healing? Of course, we still do not know the final outcome of the elections. There are many court cases to hear and many challenges... [Read more of this review]


Movie Review; The Life Ahead. Movie Review; The Life Ahead.

(Akiit.com) Upon hearing the premise of this film, involving an 86-year-old Jewish Holocaust survivor and a 12-year-old Senegalese immigrant, you might think you’re in for 94 minutes of sentimental drama. In some ways, maybe so. In others not. But out of an abundance of caution, keep a box of tissues handy. The origin of this story goes back to 1975, when French director and screenwriter Romain Gary... [Read more of this review]


Boy, Hillary Clinton must be seething. Boy, Hillary Clinton must be seething.

(Akiit.com) As she has watched the events of the past month unfold – or, more accurately, not unfold – Hillary Clinton had to have been seething. If Big Media, Big Tech and the deep state had provided her the cover it provided Joe Biden, she would have shattered the glass ceiling in 2016 and swanned her way into the White House. Unlike Biden, Hillary actually had fans. Those young women who thronged... [Read more of this review]


Democrat Joe Biden, the Luckiest Politician in American History. Democrat Joe Biden, the Luckiest Politician in American History.

(Akiit.com) Joe Biden has faced many tragedies in his personal life. But if he wins the presidency today, he will have been the luckiest politician in American history. 1972: Biden only wins his first Senate race in Delaware after Richard Nixon misguidedly convinces incumbent J. Caleb Boggs, who had announced he would be retiring, to run again. It is also the first Senate election in which 18-year-olds... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) Economic recovery will be a long time coming.  The Federal Reserve Bank says our corona recession will last into 2021, and perhaps even into 2022.  If a vaccine is developed, a distribution plan still needs to be worked out, and there is still so much we don’t know about COVID.  We do know that our economy has slowed and is only inching toward normalcy. We know that we are experiencing... [Read more of this review]


Film Review; Spell. Film Review; Spell.

(Akiit.com) Omari Hardwick’s and Loretta Devine’s performances elevate this horror/suspense/thriller in ways the script may never have imagined. Devine, especially, steals scenes and makes her venomously evil character devilish beyond redemption. Think back to the 1990 film Misery, which was based on a Stephen King novel. A famous author (James Caan) is in a car crash in wintry Silver Creek, Colorado.... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) Are you nervous about tomorrow? I know I am! If you say “no” in the comments, I’m gonna go ahead and call you out for lying right here. Only someone not cognizant of the overwhelming stakes wouldn’t have at least a few butterflies, no matter how strong your belief or even your faith. Given those butterflies, you’d probably love to read another column explaining why a Trump victory... [Read more of this review]

(Akiit.com) Without question, the upcoming presidential election is one of the most heated and divisive in recent memory. Current tensions have brought not only disagreements, bickering, and violence, but also misplaced distrust in the functionality of the U.S. presidential election system itself. Both Democrats and Republicans fear that fraud and dishonesty can tip the scales against them. These practices... [Read more of this review]


Americans – November 3: So Much At Stake In This Election Americans – November 3: So Much At Stake In This Election

(Akiit.com) Vote! I cannot say it any simpler or say it enough. Vote to restore government for the people, by the people; vote to preserve our threatened middle class; vote for America’s workers by voting for an America that works; vote up and down the ballot and vote union blue. Sisters and brothers, I have to say that never before has there been so much at stake for the American people than in... [Read more of this review]


Oscar Wilde Was Part Of This Gay Secret Society. Oscar Wilde Was Part Of This Gay Secret Society.

(Akiit.com) Let’s take a trip back to 1897. Homosexuality is a criminal act – one people are starting to think of as a psychological disorder. A young gay man named George Cecil Ives finds himself constrained by the society he lives in and seeks change. He starts a secret society.  What is the secret society for? Giving gay people a way to communicate.  That’s right: Ives believed... [Read more of this review]


Is Getting Donald Trump Worth It? Is Getting Donald Trump Worth It?

(Akiit.com) President Donald Trump is not the first president to be hated by a large segment of the American population. In more recent times, there was considerable hate for President Ronald Reagan. Even though the Democratic Speaker of the House Tip O’Neill and Reagan were polar opposites in their politics, they could be friends. Once, when Reagan confronted O’Neill about nasty things... [Read more of this review]


Ice Cube, Don’t Be Confused. Ice Cube, Don’t Be Confused.

(Akiit.com) I was ready to be forgiving of people who hadn’t decided for whom to vote this late, but no longer after hearing the latest news about foreign interference in our November election—and not hearing a mumbling word from the President of the United States! This President has not shown any interest in protecting our democracy from foreign intervention in our election. He’s already asked... [Read more of this review]
