It is so much in this film that we as a people have forgotten. Those kids had a basic understanding of what they wanted, and when they wanted it. This film is old, but very relevant, because many of us is still striving to achieve the acceptance of yt.
And not only that bro. Enki, but moreover, the knowledge contained in this film further stamps our right to be here, and lays the perfect ground work explaining why Reparations are necessary and due for Black people in America.
Bruh, it's a shame how little we were, and is taught about our accomplishments. I grew up in Chicago and was never taught that a black man founded it. Here in Wa. State, people don't know that a black man founded Centralia.
Centralia History - Centralia, Washington, was founded in 1875 by George Washington, the son of a black slave, and a jack-of-all-trades who journeyed to the Pacific Northwest to create a new life.

A person could easily think that only MLK and a few others ever did anything because they are the only ones presented to us year after year.
Let's make it one better, its a shame ...
In the film, that picture of that tracker is not the true image. That is the version that whites did to make him look more white and less black. They wanted the feats, and accomplishments, but not the black face that went with them.
Which is exactly why, starting on this site, we should be more tolerant of our differences, in order to correct his-story about us.
And reminds me, this guy may be worth watching Enki:
Africa : - How to tell what specific part of Africa someone is from?
Hi, I'm sure this has been brought up before but I'm a white man who's heavily interested in the ancient history of the Celts, Germans and Slavs, back...
Sometimes people stand up and then back down too...
I. e., I do recall how one time TV host Cosby was a part of 'telling it like it is (or was)', whereas the older version can't or won't, whereas others did or do remain more consistent...
If you can take it raw as well as real:
Do check or recheck the pic MANDINGO...
Modern stuff, like FIFTEEN YEARS A SLAVE, is just another revisionist take...
Oh, how the other posters are too quick to dismiss less flattering films, such as LEADBELLY, or don't even bring up the likes of CORNBREAD/EARL AND ME, to the younger ones...
