Comment: Re: SHK 12.2057 Hamlet Head Over Heels
The male lead (a Jamaican character) is named Winston Shakespeare (Taye
Diggs) in the romantic melodrama How Stella Got Her Groove Back (dir.
Kevin Ridney Sullivan, 1998). When (Angela Basset) scoffs and calls him
"Mr. Shakespeare," he replies "What? You didn't know that Shakespeare
was black?" http://us.imdb.com/Title?0120703
