    OK I have a few questions to ask and the one that get all of them right first will get a 20 Blockbuster Gift certificate from Me.

    Reason- for fun

    #1. What was the first movie that Larry Fishburne played in and how old was he?

    #2. Who was the first DR. to Successfully complete open heart surgery and in what year, and why was the surgery necessary?(What was the cause)

    #3. Who is mostly responsable for the designs for the White house. And what was one of his most famous creations?

    #4. What was Martin Luther Kings Birth name?

    #5. Here is an easy one. Who was the first black actor to win an Academy award and for what movie?

    Ill keep it short and sweet. Im a little late , but better late than never and besides I think it will be interesting to see who will be first to get them all right.

    Its not just black history its your history.

    Ive heard more out of him on line than in real life.

    But since Im in the spirit of giving I will give 10 dollars a piece to the only people to answer any questions.

    Thank you for joining in Jeff and Stone

    The answer to the other 2 questions are:

    #2. Dr. Daniel Hale Williams Jr. the patient suffered a knife wound that was 2 inches deep. The year was 1893 and the man lived 20 years after the surgery. In that day to stub your toe an live longer was a blessing.

    #3. Benjamin Banneker was the creater of the first Farmers Almanac and the first American built striking clock completely made out of wood. The clock worked to the second for 50 years. Talk about american made.

    Next Week movie trivia... Money involved questions to be answered and nothing to lose...
