This film has won several film festival awards, had a special screening for the NAACP's National Board, was screened at Harvard Kennedy School's Carr Center for Human Rights Policy, and was just nominated for a special award from the Congressional Black Caucus's Veterans Braintrust. Audiences are rating it an _average_ of 5 out of 5 and calling it "powerful," "rich on so many levels," and "inspiring." It's about 100 years of racism told through the spellbinding storyteller Isaac Pope's life. Isaac Pope was a 100-year-old grandson of enslaved people, son of sharecroppers, an unsung hero of the civil rights movement, of World War II's Battle of the Bulge, of labor organizing, of his church, and of his wider community. His wisdom, warm humor, penetrating political insights, love, and compassion permeate the film, which also shows interracial/interethnic friendships that serve as much-needed models for today.
