Did Steven Spielberg's 'The Color Purple' Send Black Men to Prison?
According to statistical data the number of black men convicted of a crime doubled between 1982 and 1985! It is obvious when one reads the book vs. the movie the latter will leave you more aware of white supremacy/oppression and the former more confused about the oppression of Black Men! This was Spielberg's desire! The question that arrises is: Just how much damage did Spielberg's 'The Color Purple do to Black Men?
