Shavsha Israel in Diary of a Tired Black Man

Diary of a Tired Black Man

2008 R

Written, produced and directed by filmmaker Tim Alexander, this provocative work blends documentary footage with fictionalized vignettes to explore the complicated relationships between African-American men and women in the modern day. Following his less-than-amicable divorce, James (Jimmy Jean-Louis) reluctantly reenters the dating scene but finds little solace in the angry black women he meets.
