A good film it was more like a history about how black people where treated. very upsetting but makes you see how bad it was back then.

Just a list of events - more like a chronicle than a film. Would have been promising but it was without opinions or interpretations.

I thought this was an excellent film and a challenging story.
I gave it a four star rating because whilst it was an excellent
film and I would recommend it to all viewers I am aware that
some will find this a little slow moving.
