Oh my! I’ve always wanted to find a tutorial on snapping like a diva! This is amazing.
This scene was from a documentary by Marlon Riggs called “Tongues Untied” (1989). Riggs was a poet, filmmaker, teacher, and activist and his film work was made at the height of the AIDS crisis in the US. It explored homosexuality, racism, and identity in the black community in that era. It was mostly serious but he obviously had a great sense of humor too. This clip is funny but “Tongues Untied” was also really groundbreaking in it’s day. It’s out on DVD. Riggs passed away in 1994.
