Andra Day says : “They do not like Black people, let alone the idea of black liberation and equality or freedom or autonomy. And so she represented all of those things that they hated the most that they’ve been taught to hate the most, that they chose to continue hating the most, and yet they had to stop or they had to silence her. And that’s always been a goal,” “But with the abolition of slavery, I mean, even with the laws that were enacted and vagrancy laws and all of those things, you know, it’s always been an attempt to sort of monetize Black bodies through the process of criminalization, as we’ve seen. So she was a threat to their established and their desired way of life” External link

Lee Daniels said ( about Andra Day ) : “There’s a beauty of working in independent cinema because I don’t have to answer to anybody but the actors and my crew,” "There’s no outside interference from suits who don’t know anything about our culture. It was great to just do us. Everything you see on that screen is us. It’s our soul”. Day was grateful that the start date kept getting pushed back. She had about a year and a half to prepare, which started confusing her mother when she’d drift into Billie-isms in real life. “My behaviors would change.

Andra Day says : “They do not like Black people, let alone the idea of black liberation and equality or freedom or autonomy.

And that’s always been a goal,” “But with the abolition of slavery, I mean, even with the laws that were enacted and vagrancy laws and all of those things, you know, it’s always been an attempt to sort of monetize Black bodies through the process of criminalization, as we’ve seen.

Lee Daniels said ( about Andra Day ) : “There’s a beauty of working in independent cinema because I don’t have to answer to anybody but the actors and my crew,” "There’s no outside interference from suits who don’t know anything about our culture. It was great to just do us. Everything you see on that screen is us. It’s our soul”. Day was grateful that the start date kept getting pushed back. She had about a year and a half to prepare, which started confusing her mother when she’d drift into Billie-isms in real life. “My behaviors would change. I was smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol and just wilder than I’m used to being, more emotionally vulnerable and open,” Day said. “I’m a Capricorn, I keep that (expletive) on lock" External link
