Yesterday while at the DWIFF awards ceremony I had the opportunity to meet and watch Sharon-Elizabeth Sexton, writer and director of Black Bottom and Paradise Valley: The Forgotten Legacy receive her award for best documentary. I was very excited for her because she captured the history of a place that my mother, uncles, and many other family members were raised. My mother had told me many stories about growing up in "Black Bottom". I only could imagine what she was telling me in my mind. Now I have a chance to actually see visuals from "Black Bottom". I haven't actually had the chance to see the documentary yet but, I'm going to track it down and see it soon.
