Order Esther Iverem’s We Gotta Have It: Twenty Years of Seeing Black at the Movies. 1986-2006. An essential overview of the “New Wave” in Black cinema—a complex, often surprising perspective on art, society, and history. More than 400 reviews, plus essays and interviews from your favorite movie critic.
Early raves for We Gotta Have It:
"Esther Iverem brings a voice that is deft, insightful and good-humored to the subject of African American culture."
"Esther Iverem… is, hands down, one the smartest cultural critics of her generation. This wonderful romp through the last two decades of black-subject films will have you visiting your local video store on the regular. It’s one of those book we gotta have."
--Robin D. G. Kelley
"The work of African American filmmakers continues to out pace critiques and commentary by African American film critics. Esther Iverem closes this gap.”
