From the perspective of a Christian, I loved the gospel music so much that I felt that the music complimented the movie even more. I am a gospel lover and I would like to know if there is a soundtrack? I also feel that the significance of this movie was missed by some viewers. The church setting and God-Lovers who had no choice but to be disposed to Satan driven sin (rape, alcohol, sex slavery, lying, fornication, murder, racial hatred, lynchings, lust and everything else that is wrong with this world) are all in the Bible and the story line a (real-life movie) of what our ancestors endured during those times were just as real as the nose on our faces. Gospel music - in my opinion- is an expression of God's Holy Bible and how Christians should live their lives. I cried when I saw how our ancestors were treated (like garbage) and the gospel music made it that much reality. Please, Please, produce more movies like this with gospel music. Back in the slavery era, God's Church and gospel music was the only "Peace of mind" that our ancestors had from those who were obviously "satan-deceived." Keep up the excellent work of the truth. Please do not "sugar coat" how things were, if the gospel music had not been added to this story line, especially since this is how it really was, then you would be short-changing Black History and the History of Gospel Music.
