Check out our new episode Black Folk Don’t: Get Married

In an interview, Charlie Rose asked the Director of “Waiting to Exhale”, Forest Whitaker: Where are the good men?

He shares:

"What it’s about is we find them looking for these men we find them trying to define themselves by these things. By the end of the the movie one of the characters has a man but the other three do not but they all still feel good about themselves. Whitney’s character says to her mother ‘I have a job I have friends, I have family, i’m okay, i’m fine. I may never get married but you know what, I’m happy….’"

Check out the whole interview here. And if you didn’t get a chance to enjoy the 90’s check out the movie trailer to “Waiting to Exhale” here.
