The director and stars of “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” shared how they felt God’s undeniable presence as they filmed alongside Chadwick Boseman in what would be the late actor’s final performance.

Colman Domingo, Glynn Turman and Michael Potts star alongside Boseman and Viola Davis in George C. Wolfe’s film adaptation of August Wilson’s play “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom.” The film follows the talented-but-hardened blues singer Ma Rainey (Davis) and her band members Levee (Boseman), Toledo (Turman), Cutler (Domingo), and Slow Drag (Potts) as they gather at a recording studio in Chicago in 1927.
