As people of color, it took a whole generation in many ways to get us out of the kitchen, and it's gonna take us the same whole generation to get us back into the kitchen and have ownership of restaurants, hotels and stuff like that.
I love putting people to work of color.
In a movie, you're raw material, just a hue of some color and the director makes the painting.
I love color. When I paint, I use a lot of color. I love art that has a vibrancy of color and compositions. I adore the Impressionists, and I'm influenced strongly by them as a self-taught artist.
Women have a better sense of color and a better color memory. They're more likely to notice when something doesn't match; more likely to notice what you're wearing.
Duke Ellington always had a style: original, clean with interesting color combinations. He had an artist's eye.
When you're doing a film and the majority of the film is cast black, for me, it's most important to get people to view those movies as just movies, as just good movies. At the end of the day, regardless of the color of the cast, we're all doing the same thing in this business: trying to make a good film.
The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead station.
Entertainment came out of this thing called a television, and it was gray. Most of the films that we saw at the cinema were black and white. It was a gray world. And music somehow was in color.
Voting for Romney after the train wreck of that was the eight years of W. Bush is like losing your pay check playing a rigged game of three-card monte and then playing the same game again a week later 'cause the cards are a different color.
I like to wear a lot of one-tone color outfits - same color trousers, same color shirt.
I'm not big on lip color, but I like to have a little something.

I used to think that I could be successful if I pretended to be a 23-year-old black woman. I wanted to find a young black woman who would be willing to go in on this with me. I would write her novels, and then she would do the touring. I always thought I was too old and the wrong color.
One of the problems with episodic television of any color is that everything has got to be okay at the end of the episode so it can start again next week.

A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
Leonardo da Vinci
Martin Luther King, Jr.
