Having Our Say: The Delany Sisters' First One Hundred Years
Featuring an all-star cast, including Academy Award nominee Diahann Carroll (1974, Best Actress, Claudine), Ruby Dee (Do the Right Thing) and Amy Madigan (Field of Dreams), Having Our Say: The Delany Sisters' First One Hundred Years tells the story of two sisters, 103-year-old Sadie (Carroll) and 101-year-old Bessie (Dee). When a reporter (Madigan) comes to interview the two ladies, Sadie and Bessie talk about how they overcame the racist Jim Crow laws, and how their parents handled the turbulent times with dignity and wisdom. Also featuring Lisa Arrindell Anderson, Mykelti Williamson (Forrest Gump), Lonette McKee (Malcolm X), Richard Roundtree (Shaft), and Della Reese (TV’s “Touched by an Angel”), Having Our Say: The Delany Sisters' First One Hundred Years is a warm, loving story about hope, strength and faith.
