Essay 440

An award-winning MultiCultClassics Monologue…

• Despite lackluster reviews, Tyler Perry’s “Madea’s Family Reunion” sold $30.3 million worth of tickets to grab the Number 1 film spot. Holding steady at Number 3 despite even worse reviews was Steve Martin’s “The Pink Panther.” Seems like the perfect time for Cuba Gooding Jr. to introduce a new flick.

• The NAACP Image Awards honored Jamie Foxx as best male musical artist, Bernie Mac as best comedy series actor, co-star Camille Winbush as best supporting actress, Chris Rock for best television series, Mariah Carey for best album and many other superstars. Who hosted the gala? Cuba Gooding Jr.

• The Episcopal Diocese of Washington proposed the late Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall for sainthood. “We’re not like Catholics with a formal canonization process, but we honor people who have lived good lives,” said a church official. “Marshall risked his life for racial justice… The people we honor are worthy of this tribute.” Hey, what about Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas? Or Cuba Gooding Jr.?
