    Black Is King

    ★★★★★

    Artistry at its highest level. A full day later and it's all I can think about. Whether it's humming one of the songs or randomly flashing back to one of a thousand different shots or people clad in head-spinning wardrobe, this visual album gets a hold of you and doesn't let go.

    It's breathtaking to watch some of the most talented performers in the world all simultaneously deliver apex performances on the same stage. This is entertainment perfection at its grandest scale.

    I don't have any new perspectives that haven't already been shared over the past five years about the brilliance of Hamilton. I'm just so glad that we have it on demand, and can return to any time to be heartened when our current political landscape tests our resolve as we fight to make the United States the best version of itself it can possibly be.
