The New Face of Black Masculinity!

The New Face of Black Male Masculinity,sans oversexed rappers, and clownish buffoons. The new face, however is reminiscent of the early works of Sidney Poiter of Blackboard Jungle, Lilies of the Field, and later films such as Heat of the Night, and no one personifies this more than Rob Brown (Finding Forrester)(The Express)Derek Luke(Antoine Fisher)(Miracle at St Anna's)It is refreshing to see these two young actors carry on Poitier's legacy in their roles!
