While a little too campy, it's still great!
9 February 2019 | by thebenstrongSee all my reviews

As a white, strait, southern (Alabama (and now Georgia)) Christian male, I usually don't sit around watching black history programs because it recent years, it's less about the great things that were accomplished during times of strife and more about claiming victimhood and blaming white men for everything. While I acknowledge that black folk have gotten the short end of the stick throughout history, I am overly tired of being blamed for it just because my great, great grandparents were white southerners... though not near rich enough to even think about having servants. In fact, a large portion of my own ancestry was sharecroppers and indentured servants, themselves. While not completely relatable to forced slavery, it's still a far cry for being rich slave owners. That being said, I really enjoyed Kevin Hart's special. It was a bit too campy and corny for most people - some may even find it offensive if their underwear's on too tight - but he gives a ton of information that I've never heard before. It's packed with stories and info of lesser-known people within black history that did more to advance their situations than most anyone alive today. Kevin doesn't present this film with a preachy tone; rather, he comes with what appears to be a light-hearted approach that many people can appreciate without feeling blamed or vilified for once. I'd give it 10 stars if it wasn't so corny.
