This is a must see for everyone, for whites to see the pain and desperation that racism caused, and African Americans to commiserate with the injustice the previous generation endured. Educational and well made. It doesn't matter that it was a low budget film; one hardly notices it. The pain and emotions come through well to the viewer. Without seeing films like this, it is difficult to appreciate the suffocating sense of desperation that comes from a biased court system, penalizing the color of your skin. Nothing beats reading "The Autobiography of Malcolm X" to experience the exquisite pain and suffering millions went through. Incidentally the film Malcolm X was an utter, utter disaster in this respect. Spike Lee turned it into a run of a mill Hollywood entertainment film and nothing comes across of the intense injustice and desperation that lead men to risk their lives in an open struggle, which makes this film all the more successful: low budget thus lower pressure to make a profit rather than get the message through.
