37 - Queen of Katwe (2016) by Micheaux Mission

Acclaimed actors Lupita Nyong'o and David Oyelowo lend immense prestige to director Mira Nair's heartfelt sports drama but it is Madina Nalwanga and the first time acting children of this beautiful, humble and dangerous city in Africa who bring the #1 spice for sure! Walt Disney should be proud. Featuring Young Cardamom & HAB - #1 Spice

3 - Fresh (1994) by Micheaux Mission

Next stop on the Mission is FRESH (1994) featuring a very young Sean Nelson outsmarting daddy Samuel Jackson and sharp dressed, sharper chiseled Giancarlo Esposito at a figurative game of chess to save his sister N'Bushe Wright. Director Boaz Yakin may have made a flick that outsmarted its audience as well.
