Why is no one seeing this movie?
9 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Interesting and compelling, Letter to the President is less about hip-hop, and more about black struggles after the civil rights movement. Letter to the President examines political and social issues that were discussed through hip-hop. You don't have to listen to hip-hop, or even be interested in it to view this film, although your attitudes may change after seeing it. And not just about music. The movie examines how Reagan's economic plan effected black communites, the crack epidemic, drug policies, the prison system, and more. The movie also features interesting interviews with noted hip hop artists such as KRS One as well as historians. Well worth seeing.
