Tells the story of the American civil rights movement through its powerful music - the freedom songs protesters sang on picket lines, in mass meetings, and in jail cells as they fought for justice and equality. Features new performances of the freedom songs by top artists; archival footage; and interviews with civil rights foot soldiers and leaders. Freedom songs evolved from slave chants, from the labor movement, and especially from the black church. Music enabled blacks to sing words they could not say, and it was crucial in helping the protesters as they faced down brutal aggression with dignity and non-violence. The infectious energy of the songs swept people up and empowered them to fight for their rights. This film celebrates the vitality of this music.

Na segunda, que ocorre no tempo presente, um brilhante neurocirurgio precisa de um transplante de medula ssea e acaba descobrindo esse passado sombrio quando inicia uma procura por seus pais biolgicos.

Anti R (br) wrote: The denunciation of racism is well done but the film would like to make us believe that France is a country of resistans (while they were mostly colaborating) and that the cathos, by nature antisemitic, wanted to protect the Jews during the occupation, Which is false, as the example of Poland shows. And why is the denouncing guy a worker when the resistance was predominantly communist? The most racist are found amongst the capitalists. We must not forget the fate of the blacks in the death camps. To see with a critical eye.

Allan C (mx) wrote: Not bad action/drama. DMX is a decent actor with enough charism to make him a compelling enough protagonist. The classic rise and fall crime story is pretty familiar, but stylish direction form Spike Lee's former cinematographer, Ernest Dickerson, good action sequences (though not enough to call this an action film) and solid performances make it better than I'd expected. The main weakness of the film is the unnecessary wrap around story of David Arquette researching the life of doomed criminal DMX, who is shown in a coffin at the start of the film with the rest of the film unfolding in flashbacks with DMX narration. It's better than a Wesley Snipes direct-to-video film, but it's still not exactly a must see film unless you're a huge DMX fan.
