This is a scene from the classic film "Cornbread Earl and Me" I saw this film for the first time as a kid. My parents always brought home classics for us to watch and learn from. This particular film portrays a young black male who is destined to succeed. He's a basketball player on his way to college... This scene cuts between an ongoing conversation between the kids, cornbread, and the owner of the store while the police are looking for a criminal who happens to be black and wearing a similar outfit as Cornbread. What adds to this scene is the rain.... what does it make you feel? I encourage you to watch the film in its entirety when you get the chance.
