Required viewing for people of color in the life.
17 May 2003 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Rustin and Baldwin are role models that need to be understood by generations to come. This movie helps to show the paradign that Rustin had to work in to do the great things he did. Also the movie prepares the mind of people of color who are in the life as to the challenges they must face.
