1985: "The Color Purple"

This scene from the 1985 film The Color Purple, based on the 1982 novel by Alice Walker, depicts a Georgia juke joint in 1922 (the kind praised by Zora Neale Hurston). That's Margaret Avery (who was born in Mangum, Oklahoma) in the role of Shug (the singer), Whoopi Goldberg as Miss Celie, and Danny Glover as Albert.
