A short but poignant drama about nine African American heroes!
3 November 2001 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

The summary says it all! It is only sad that some people in the South today STILL actually hate African Americans. Hopefully this will eventually be bred out of people, and people will be seen for WHO they are, not WHAT they are (with regards to the color of their skin).

Surely the struggle was/is vindicated by the success enjoyed by people who have fought hard for their rights, such as Ernest Green.

All very valuable members of the American public.

This movie skips quite a bit of detail, but for a taste of history, it is quite accurate whilst still being entertaining.

I recommend this movie to anyone interested in American history and the struggle between racism and humanity.
