The Wiz

This year we celebrate 40 years since The Wiz debut. I️ was first introduced to this movie back in 2007 while at FAMU yes I️ know but once I️ watched it, I️ was memorized. Modeled after the Wizard of Oz, the Broadway musical turned movie brought it’s own unique style, memorable Motown music with fun dance sequences, creative sets including one filmed at the World Trade Center and lets not forget the star-studded cast including Nipsey Russel, Ted Ross, Lena horne, Michael Jackson, Richard Pryor and the last living matriarch of the film Diana Ross. The Wiz is iconic and goes on the list of the holy grail of black cult classics. What’s your favorite scene from the film?
