History as it should be told
20 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

I wish that I could give this movie more than 10. The way this story is presented is to take a walk back in time and then slowly come forward experiencing every iota of existence.Every joy, every pain, every hurt, every anger, every disdain, every disgust. A strong narrative that fuels emotions in persons so far removed from the situation.It is disheartening to think that men like Thurgood Marshall are so easily forgotten by the upcoming generations. His journey is one of true patriotism and a labor of love and compassion and courage to wage on in the face of all who dare stop him. Like those before him and those hopefully after him, he fought to show the black man that the dark richness of the skin was never a curse even the world around him said it was and treated him as an incurable plague.
