Trivia

The Brotherhood of Sleeping Car Porters (BCSP) was created August 25, 1925 as a union for Pullman porters and maids. While the script and storyline of this movie does not make reference to female membership directly, there are visual references to female voting membership in the meetings and especially in the voting lines, especially as depicted in the union/police confrontation scene towards the end of the movie. The BSCP was the first Afro-American labor organization to receive a charter (membership) in the American Federation of Labor (AFL), and continued to be an active member union of the AFL up to and including the 1955 merger of the AFL with the Congress of Industrial Organizations (CIO) to form the AFL-CIO.

Good story, good direction
11 March 2002 | by (Colorado) – See all my reviews

Enjoyable civil rights saga. While this genre usually has excessive sincerity and unbelievably saintly protagonists, the saga of black civil rights is the great epic of the American 20th century, and it's always stirring to watch. Braugher and Dutton give good performances, the whole thing holds together pretty well. Good background score. Well worth its 90 minutes.
