Ready for The Get Down
Tomorrow, my eyes are going to be glued to director Baz Luhrmann's new Netflix series, The Get Down. Set in the South Bronx at the birth of hip hop, the show brings me right back to my childhood. Block parties. Lee jeans, creased in the middle. My brothers trying to do the windmill. And just look at all those beautiful brown faces featured in the clip above! I just hope the show gets it right.
My young adult novel is set in the same area in the Bronx so consider this show a precursor. Let's meet on twitter and break down The Get Down.
