Last night was a special one.
The @thenyff Premiere of Barry Jenkins screen adaptation of James Baldwin’s “If Beale Street Could Talk” @bealestreet at the legendary Apollo Theatre in Harlem.
It is such an honour to be a part of this ensemble cast to bring this timely and important story of Harlem Love to the screen. It was an honour to work with Barry, a hero of mine, who is the epitome of humility, class, grace, delicacy and creative instinct, an actors dream. It was an honour to bring James Baldwin’s work to life. James’s writing brings you face to face with the truth - often a truth and reality that is hard to face - with an economy of words and eloquence still unrivalled. This is an important moment in cultural history and last night it was beautiful to be with so many Baldwin Family members to celebrate this moment and converse together. 🙏🏼
