This documentary is not only informative but, also thought provoking. With beautiful stimulating photos, art, and music it is sure to keep your attention. Also it is packed full of interesting facts about African-American heroes you may know of or will soon by discovering them through this documentary. While watching i could not help but feel inspired by those who came before me and fought for my future. This is a great film to watch with children. They can also benefit as they absorb knowledge from these great heroes documented in this film. - Fatima Gridley
