5.0 out of 5 stars Very Moving!
If you love this film you will also like 'They don't want us here' by Kevin Watson. You can buy it on Amazon only. It is based on a true story set in England where the author has gone through his own middle passage. It makes painful reading while reminding us that little has changed where racism is concerned! You owe it to yourself to get this book if you enjoyed...

1.0 out of 5 stars Have not been able to view.
Unable to view on any of my DVD players, all I get is “Check Reginald Code”. I believe these are region 1 discs, (U.S. and Canada) and are unplayable on my region 2 DVD players.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Moving!, 6 April 2014
This review is from: UP FROM SLAVERY (DVD)
If you love this film you will also like 'They don't want us here' by Kevin Watson. You can buy it on Amazon only. It is based on a true story set in England where the author has gone through his own middle passage. It makes painful reading while reminding us that little has changed where racism is concerned! You owe it to yourself to get this book if you enjoyed .

The scenario:

The writer has kept diaries on his experiences while living under Bromford Housing Association. What could only be described as a slow psychological hanging where each day he was subjected to harassment, which finally led to arson attempt on his life and property by his white neighbours. The racism he experienced became tucked under carpet by Bromford Housing Association

Eventually after years of hell and endurance; he was only free from this nightmare hell because his neighbour was put into prison for nearly four years after trying to set fire to his flat. Kevin contacted the black 'Voice' newspaper who ran an article. now Bromford Housing Association had nothing to lose! how dare he contact the voice newspaper exposing this racist institution?

Kevin Watson thought his nightmare was over; but it was only just beginning! Bromford had moved racist neighbours who would continue this reign of terror; but only this time; slowly torturing Kevin to the point of hopelessness, and thoughts of suicide!

In the end what could only be described as provocative and racially motivated; Bromford created situations where they conspired with Kevin’s racist neighbours in which to drive him finally out of his home! In the end Kevin sandwiched between Bromford refusal to deal with the racist abuse, and threats from his white neighbours; while denial from the Staffordshire police trying to deal with the case; Kevin would end up running from his home for his dear life away from his neighbours who were using killer dogs as weapons!

His mental health rapidly declined as a result of institutional racism and its’ failure in which to want to tackled it. Once Kevin left his home he thought that the curse of Bromford was left behind not realising that Bromford wanted to destroy him even if it meant lying or even breaking the law! They wanted him silenced, and would stoop to any level to see that even if it meant lying and fabrication and even falsifying police records!

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring, boring, boring...!, 15 Jun 2014

This review is from: UP FROM SLAVERY (DVD)
Monotone voice, at the background 'slaves singing', against pictures and some 'enactment'. Good documentary if you have problems to fall asleep.
