  • Black Nativity offers a whopping serving of Yuletide emotion. And it's a musical - with plenty of wailing and rapping on the side. show more

  • This holiday extravaganza with an all-star cast has a lot of failings. But it seems likely to tap into the audience’s enthusiasm for uplifting entertainment. show more

  • Like "Eve's Bayou," her best-known movie, Kasi Lemmons' Black Nativity presents a child's view of a troubled family. The latter film is sweeter and slenderer, but that's only to be expected. show more

    THE TITLE TELLS US WHO THE INTENDED MARKET FOR THE FILM IS. SO WHY REACT WITH HATE TO A TITLE?

    Are colored people not sick of this foam of discrimination? If non-colored folk had movies, channels, history months, beauty pageants, comedy nights, etc, etc, etc, etc, etc, about them, wouldn't that be racist? Whats next, White Nativity?

    Why don't they just call it "Nativity". Why does it have to be about color.
