Cut and pasted from the Operation Black Vote (OBV) website:

The new screen adaptation of Emily Bronte's classic Wuthering Heights hit cinemas on Friday. Most people were pleasantly surprised to see anti-hero Heathcliff played by a Black actor but not everyone shares this view. Here, OBV intern Ijeoma Mbubaegbu and contributor Rakshita Patel give their views on the new Wuthering Heights movie and the "Black" Heathcliff.

Thank you to OBV for giving my review a much wider circulation and distribution.
