Compositions in Black and White    ·    January 5th, 2007

Alicia Keys is still hammering away at her upcoming Halle Berry-produced film project, a flick that will find her hammering away at the keys as a biracial pianist in the 1940s. “Compositions in Black and White” is based on the book of the same name and follows the story of Philippa Schuyler. “The challenge, in order to actually be able to play classical piano as a woman of mixed race, was by far more than I could ever imagine,” Keys said. “That’s what intrigued me about that role.” The biopic will tell the difficult tale of Schuyler’s controversial career, love-hate relationship with her mother and the black community, her second career as a writer and her eventual death in a helicopter accident. “Her story is very deep, even up to the point where the relationship between her and her mother gets very strained and she chooses to go to Europe and pass as a Spanish woman in order to be able to play, in order to be able to live a more normal life,” Keys said, adding that she and Berry hope to start shooting in early ‘08. “As of right now, we’re still in the first, second draft of the script,” she said. “So a little bit of time — at least a year.” …

    This is Jerry Bynum C/o 2007 in Itt Tech College representing!!! The answer to Mrs. Keys about what would be the solution to world peace, would be to let God take a hand in the matters and everyone should accept his divine hand and not try to force another persons will on everyone else. Besides were all free moral agents living on the same earth, and God is the one who created all humans to live on it regardless of nationality. This is Jerry Bynum C/0 2007!!! Keep Smokin those Aces Alicia!! peace!!

    When I read that the life of Philippa was being made into a movie, Alicia Keys was the first person I thought should play the lead. I can’t wait for the movie to come out and congratulate Alicia on a viable acting career.
