As February comes to an end and March nears, the Academy Awards loom on the horizon. It is appropriate, then, that we discussTwelve Years a Slave.Not only is this movie nominated for numerous Oscars—including “Best Picture”—but the story is an important piece of our overall history.

Confession: I haven’t seen the movie. I’m not much of a moviegoer, but I do intend to see it soon since I heard it was well done. I did read the book, and if the movie is anywhere near as gut-wrenching and eye-opening, then I have no doubt it should take home many awards.

By Jennifer Albers-Smith

如果你还没有上火车顿得到,现在是时候。令人兴奋的事情发生在节目中,我几乎不能等到周日晚上,当我看到另一个插曲。我拒绝通过购买4季的DVD关闭亚马逊,看它在一个单一的,光荣周末破坏它(虽然我很想)。我爱的故事线,我喜欢的人物,和男人,哦,人做我爱的服饰!美丽,漂亮的衣服。玛丽,科拉,伊迪丝,罗斯 - 所有都穿着这些惊人的丝裙,我想抓住从T.V.穿在我的日常生活中。

It’s 1922. T.V. didn’t exist. How did women learn about the latest fashion?
