a black manifesto, a searing indictment of America's pretence at racial equality, its institutionalized, and rabid, attacks on its own citizens, the dedication required to turn that around - Laurence Fishburne is every inch the man

This was truly an informative documentary. Mr. Fishburne's performance was a magnificent show of experience and ability. It's funny how the true stories, are always the best ones told in performance. If not for it being a cable program, this would have been Oscar material.

Excellent in every respect. This is one that I will watch again, Witty, engaging, and very well-balanced. The script for this one-man stage play is awesome.

I have never rated any DVD five stars before.

It was and is a joy.

No other actor could have portrayed Justice Marshall as well as he did. I watched this three times!
