Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Founded in 1867 to educate promising African American male students, Morehouse College in Atlanta has evolved into one of the nation's leading institutions of higher learning. This inspiring program profiles the school, its spiritual mission, and the rigorous demands it makes in molding the black leaders of tomorrow. Today's Morehouse Men are following in the footsteps of many illustrious alumni including Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., Olympic gold medalist Edwin Moses, and filmmaker Spike Lee.

Amazon.com

Atlanta's Morehouse College has long been revered as a leading academic institution, and as an all-male, historically African American institution, it has been viewed as a shaper of American black leaders, including perhaps its most notable graduate, Martin Luther King Jr. In this video, Morehouse is viewed through the eyes of its students during the 1993-94 academic year, and their year at Morehouse is seen to be an experience in character and spiritual development as much as an exercise in academic endeavor. Footage shot during a fall "spirit night," a late-night ritual to promote bonding among the student body, sets the tone for the video, which features interviews with Morehouse professors as well as notable grads filmmaker Spike Lee and Olympic gold medallist Edwin Moses. Profiles of specific students show their development through the course of the school year, and the mystique of being a "Morehouse Man," as opposed to merely a Morehouse graduate, is explored in this intelligent examination of the character of this incredible educational institution. --Robert J. McNamara

Back in 1995, as an avid watcher of PBS, I taped this program, along with The Gandy Dancers, which was about those brethern who worked the rail lines way back in the day. Who would have thought over 10 years later, I would be a student at Dear Old Morehouse?

As a graduation gift to a friend, I ordered this tape and he has enjoyed it immensely. As a participant on the popular college network, Facebook.com, I have had requests to make copies of this invaluable documentary by Spencer Tolliver.

It's too bad that the bookstore doesn't carry this!

Going through New Student Orientation and Freshmen Week are memories I will cherish forever, and as a tutor and new RA, I will have my residents watch this film as well...

This is a must have for your collection!

My son was a student at Morehouse when this documentary was filmed and can be seen in the video. 14 years later my son remembers his years at Morehouse as some of the most important in his life and has formed many lifelong relationships from his years there. I only wish it were released in DVD form. It would make a great gift.

As a current student at Morehouse College, I can tell you that this video is a much needed resourse into the everyday workings of Morehouse College. As you may know Morehouse is the only all male, Black, four year institution in the world. You have heard stories for years about Morehouse and her sons-- get this video and understand it for yourself.

This video gives you insight into the magic of Morehouse and how they systematically make "exceptional" men of the boys that enter their college. I applaud Morehouse for setting laudable standards in all aspects of life, and providing the encouragement and structure to help young men achieve beyond their wildest dreams.
