So, as you're decorating your tree, wrapping gifts, baking cookies, or just in the mood to watch a holiday movie, put on a black and white classic! One of the following nine will be a refreshing respite from all the colored films you're used to watching this time of year.
Maria Hinojosa: Well more than likely if you speak to most Harlem residents they're going to say that they're excited and really happy about the fact that the former president has chosen their neighborhood, the center of African American culture and experiences. This is a community that has gone through decades of devastation and abandonment, so any sign of someone in a position of power coming here to establish themselves is a sign that hopefully things will get better, and that's been the case. Just years ago, you couldn't find a bank on 125th street, where Clinton's office is located. Now you have banks, you have ATMs, a theater those are all a sign of progress. On the other hand, there are many race issues: will the economic growth force local businesses, working class people, African-American and Latino people out of Harlem? There are those who have raised these concerns, who are happy about the president's move, but also concerned. Also, there are more radical elements like the New Black Panther Party, who showed up Monday, about a dozen strong, wearing all black, berets saying, "Bill Clinton, go back to Arkansas." So it really runs the gamut. 2b1af7f3a8
