The Ave Podcast – The 30th Anniversary of Coming To America

The Ave Podcast with Cal Cee. Episode 51: The 30th Anniversary of Coming To America

In the spirit of #FlashbackFriday, we take it all the way back to 1988 where we celebrate and pay tribute, to one of the most successful movies in pop-black culture. Thirty years ago today, Paramount Pictures, Eddie Murphy, and Director John Landis released Coming To America, a movie about an African prince from the country of Zamunda (fictional, obviously) who travels to Queens, NY in an attempt to find his Queen. We discuss Eddie Murphy’s genius, his career arc that dominated the 80s, the star-studded cast that was in the movie, the pop-black cultural similarities between ’88 & ’18, our favorite scenes and moments, plus a whole lot more. Oh! What a feeling…..
