'The Color Purple' Cast Plays 'Yes or Hell No'
“The Color Purple” has been a near dear story to our community since its first inception as a novel by Alice Walker in 1982 before becoming the cult classic film we know and recite decades later.
Oprah Winfrey, Margaret Avery, and Whoopi Goldberg gave powerful and honorable performances in the film in 1985. Despite being nominated for eleven Oscars and leaving empty-handed, we held our own down with two NAACP Image Award wins, a Black Movie Award win, and Goldberg walked away with a Golden Globe victory for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama.
Now, we’re able to enjoy the story again with a bit more *color* as the film will be reimagined as a musical with Fantasia, Danielle Brooks, and Taraji P. Henson taking over the roles of Celie, Sofia, and Shug Avery, respectively. This new, fresh look on the film still keeps the same themes of triumph, overcoming obstacles, and recognizing that power is always within you.
In celebration of the new movie, releasing on Christmas, Brooks, Fantasia, Halle Bailey, and Phylicia Pearl Mpasi played a fun game called “Yes Or Hell No,” where they would decide after a question if they would indulge or not.
The first question to kick things off was if pineapple should be on pizza – now, this has been such a controversial question for years and with so much discourse, it seems like the only person sticking beside the unpopular opinion side is Fantasia.
