HAPPY NEW YEARS BLOGGERS
Juanita Moore passed on January 1, 2014
at the age of 99.
To those of you who’s not familiar with this actress,
check out the movie:
“Imitation of Life” (1959 version).
I always loved this movie.
Juanita Moore played the mother
of a biracial daughter who tried to pass for white.
She even disowned her mother in trying to do so.
Mrs. Moore has appeared in about 30 films
and she says
her role was mostly the hired hand.
Mrs. Moore says it was hard for a black actress in those times.
She said she even cried on the set
while shooting the movie
due to circumstances she was going through.
February is Black History month
check this movie out.
