Sparkle


Chronicling the journey of three sisters with aspirations to start a singing group in 1950s Harlem, “Sparkle” shines with commentary on how colorism, gendered violence, and larger-than-life goals affect Black women’s dreams. With an out-of-this-world soundtrack by Curtis Mayfield and starring Irene Cara, Lonette McKee, and Dwan Smith.
