Overcoming a Con fuss 'ion.
13 May 2019 | by jgoodine-53679See all my reviews

If any one can answer please... Why did the film start out in black and white while speaking of African Americans as "coloured", then transition to color then speak of African Americans as "black"?

When integration happened was that the beginning of a lot of conflict of interests between African American males and females?

Last question Who is the protagonist who I believe was the hero of the film?

The one who actual found, created, and maintained a solution to the paradox of getting the characters what they were at a conflict with? What happened to him?
