[CAN-DUH-KEE] Kandeke is a play on kandake, an ancient Nubian word meaning "warrior queen." This word has an empowering attachment to well-respected, uncompromising women in ancient African civilization, the cradle of all civilization. We are universal, too.

Paula Patton as Ms.Rain
I was late seeing Precious. I know a lot of people who couldn't get through it. It is hard on the emotions. Personally, I'm glad I got through it. Precious was somewhat of a gay movie, and after seeing it the first time, I watched it at least once a week, every week, for the entirety of last summer in my homegirl's basement. It's a favorite; one of those favorites I never think of when someone asks me what my favorite movies are. Last summer was definitely peppered with fantasies about Ms. Rain and Jermaine. Between Paula Patton and Amina Robinson, I had not a damn clue what to do with myself. It's a DVD worth paying for, most definitely.
