My Comments is giving 'Kudos' to an Excellent Movie
3 March 2001 | by (East Coast, USA) – See all my reviews

This is an Excellent Movie. It premiered approximately 4 years ago on the Lifetime Channel for Black History Month in Chicago. I have not seen a rerun of this movie yet. I have been trying to locate the video (if one exist), however I have been unsuccessful. So if someone has information as to how I can order this movie, please do not hesitate to correspond.
