Platanos and collard greens reviews
Do Platanos Go Wit Collard Greens by David LambFreeman Woodson, editor and chief of ‘the Shield’, the Black student newspaper of Hunter College, fears that Mayor David N. Dinkins, New York City’s first Black Mayor, may be blowing his bid for re-election, and that black folk may be stuck with Rudolph Giuliani as Mayor.
Unable to sit idly by, Freeman helps form ‘CUNY-for Dinkins’, a coalition of Black and Latino student organizations supporting the Dinkins’ re-election bid.
Soon his involvement in the campaign and his budding relationship with the beautiful Dominican student, Angelita, combine with a radical turn of events in her family to embroil Freeman in the depths of police corruption and a plot to assassinate the Mayor. With his back against the wall, Freeman finds himself forced to seek the assistance of a family member previously rejected as a sell-out.
Racial identity, the American melting pot, Black-Latino relations, New York City ethnic and racial politics and police corruption all converge in this humorous and suspense packed journey.
Platanos, Collard Greens Y Callaloo
The show functions without a press agent; until a few weeks ago it had no Web site. The cast is entirely anonymous, in the purest, hoariest sense of the term. Tyler Perry is not. The story, some of which is told in belabored hip-hop rhymes, revolves around a group of ambitious students at Hunter College, an election for student body president and a chaste love affair between a young African-American man and Dominican woman whose mother disapproves of the relationship. Hard working, the boy comes from a well-educated family.
As a result, member scores during previews may reflect an early version of the show. A spin on the story of Caribbean, African-American and Latino relations and a tale of love, family drama and politics.
