Once you start listening to the series you won't want to tune out. I think this is a unique digital podcast that takes the listeners on a journey through the lives of of African Americans on the Southside of Chicago in the 1940's . It chronicles black players in the lottery games while illuminating the self-sustainability of the community’s African American residents . It consist of racial tension yet shows how this particular community attained the American dream. Bronzeville immersed the listeners into a historical yet entertaining series. As Larenz Tate said " Bronzeville is theater of the mind". I as well as so many listeners are hoping for a season two or for the audio podcast to become an actual TV series or a feature film . With the amazing team that The TateMen Entertainment, Audio HQ Productions, and Cinema Gypsy Production companies, a movie or an TV show would be epic. However, this version of the audio series has created an old time feel in a modern day world. where everything is visual. This series causes you to imagine, listen closely , and visualize with your mind. For more on the Bronzeville series and to listen to the episodes get over to www.bronzevilleseries.com . Congratulations to the the writer, production team , and all of the talent that brought this audio drama series to life.
