they gonna keep making them for certain blacks and whites who like to remember the "good ol days" ...I already see Precious in the leading role and on magazine covers nationwide



‘Gone With the Wind’ prequel to focus on Mammy’s point of view





Hattie McDaniel as Mammy in the film version of 'Gone With the Wind.' A new prequel will tell Mammy's story.

On Thursday, Simon & Schuster imprint Atria Publishing announced that it had acquired rights to “Ruth’s Journey,” a novel that tells the story of servant Mammy, one of the key character’s in Margaret Mitchell’s 1936 novel. 

Mammy was played in the film version of the book by actress Hattie McDaniel, who won an Academy Award for the role.

The Mitchell estate authorized the book, which was written by Donald McCaig. He is no stranger to the world of Mitchell’s characters, having already written two other “Gone With the Wind” spin-offs.

“What’s really remarkable about what Donald has done is it’s a book that respects and honors its source material, but it also provides a necessary correction to what is one of the more troubling aspects of the book, which is how the black characters are portrayed,” Peter Borland, the editorial director of Atria, told the New York Times.
