(1997)

Trivia

Though most of the film is based on true events, the film's main character, Mann (Ving Rhames), is mostly a fictional creation. He is likely based upon a report in the week following the massacre by the Chicago Defender newspaper that a soldier named Ted Cole appeared and fought against the lynch mobs. This claim was never repeated nor verified.
