Music Monday: Black Movie Music

Hello, Brown Queens! Happy MUSIC MONDAY to you! Today's MUSIC MONDAY has a twist. The music featured today comes from the soundtracks of our favorite black films. What's your favorite movie with a predominately African-American or brown cast? Chances are, you remember the music from that movie and the soundtrack was just as iconic as the film.
