Although the single most alluded to person in the film, Louis Farrakhan is only seen briefly as the men watch the footage of the March at the hospital. He is being escorted to the podium and viewed from the back. See more »

This is the journey of a bus that is worth getting on.
We join the bus ride with a group of Black Americans as they journey to the Million Man March. During this journey, the camera enters the soul and beliefs of each character that represents a whole spectrum of the Black community. Their conversations range from the politics to the religions and beyond their inner-self . Each one finding new meaning to their life and destiny. Reggie's preachy but fascinating script is handled masterfully by the genius Spike Lee.
