[SUBJECT]: Southwide with You (2016)

In lieu of sending out my full "2019 Watch List" I'm going to recommend just one title:

Southside with You (2016).

#2. Personally, I will spend 2019 tracking down a list of books, movies, and songs assembled by Barack Obama.

(I'll include his introduction, too.)

[Barack Obama, Friday 28 December 2018]:

"As 2018 draws to a close, I’m continuing a favorite tradition of mine and sharing my year-end lists. It gives me a moment to pause and reflect on the year the books, movies, and music that I found most thought-provoking, inspiring, or just plain loved. It also gives me a chance to highlight talented authors, artists, and storytellers – some who are household names and others who you may not have heard of before. Here’s my best of 2018 list - I hope you enjoy reading, watching, and listening.

P.S. My OTHER time grew from the "i am OTHER" manifesto by Pharrell Williams!

i am OTHER™
By Pharrell Williams

I serve and represent the OTHERS because I am one myself.

OTHERS defy expectations and stereotypes.
We are curious, ambitious, energetic and have every intention
of squeezing the most out of life. Above all, we are individuals.

OTHERS don't fit into categories.
We are not jocks. Or skaters. Or musicians. Or students.
Or technologists. Or audiophiles. We want to be all of the
above and then some.

OTHERS are a diverse group of optimistic, bright minds
connected by technology and a desire to make our mark,
who together can advance culture and even humanity.

OTHERS are not defined by demographics or geography.
We have shared ideals, dreams and a vision for a new reality.

OTHERS believe individuality is the new wealth. Experiences are
the new assets to acquire. Whoever is the most individual wins.

i am OTHER celebrates people who push society forward. The
thinkers. The innovators. The outcasts. History has proven that
it's the rule breakers who have the power to change the world.
