Emotional
13 April 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just viewed part of this movie yesterday in my college American history class. I was so heartbroken to hear these true stories of slavery. I hope and pray that none of my ancestors ever owned slaves, which I highly doubt they did because they were very poor from what I know of my genealogy.

It is so hard to believe that all of this evil was only around a hundred and fifty years ago. Hard to believe how evil man can be to fellow human beings....just so hard to believe!

May they finally rest in peace with family reunited in heaven. God bless them and keep them always!

I thought this was a very good movie, very touching. I enjoyed the way the production was done. The actors seemed equally as shocked as the viewers and since the actors didn't prepare before hand, they showed true emotion in what they were portraying to the audience.

I would very much like to own this movie so I can pass it down to my children, and on to their children, etc. That way nothing like this could ever stand a chance of being repeated. This country has come a long way, but we still have more mountains to climb to correct this injustice.
