Jamie’s explanation of this scene was wonderful. I know in the film it’s used as a sort of comedic moment, but Jamie’s articulation of it was far more interesting. He talked about how slaves were kept from cultivating identities and fully expressing themselves. So when presented with the opportunity, they would have wanted to shine and be seen. He drew a parallel to today, when black people make it and get some money, many times we are flashy. It’s a demonstration. ‘Yes we made it. And you cannot ignore us.’
