    The Final Word Podcast Black History Month The Wiz (1978) Review

    in Film

    Join us as we celebrate the 28 Black films that everyone must see for Black History Month at 8pm (EST) 5pm (PST) LIVE nightly. Each is a must-see as it reflects the real life circumstances that many black people have experienced or can relate to. Watch as these films represent a community with a rich and significant contribution to the world. These movies are in no particular order. Don't see a particular movie on the list? Email us: TheFinalWordPodcast@yahoo.com

    When Harlem schoolteacher Dorothy (Diana Ross) tries to save her dog from a storm, she's miraculously whisked away to an urban fantasy land called Oz. After accidentally killing the Wicked Witch of the East upon her arrival, Dorothy is told about the Wiz (Richard Pryor), a wizard who can help her get back to Manhattan. As Dorothy goes in search of the Wiz, she's joined by the Scarecrow (Michael Jackson), the Tin Man (Nipsey Russell) and the Cowardly Lion (Ted Ross).  An adaption of "The Wizard of Oz" that successfully captures the essence of the African American experience for that time.
