Product Description

It was the summer of 2008 in Memphis, the birthplace of the blues. America was commemorating the 40th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., against the backdrop of then Senator Barack Obama emerging as the first African American to become the Democratic presidential nominee. As America approached the historic presidential election, the national dialogue and debate intensified about race relations, politics, and the legacy of the civil rights movement. Broadcaster Tavis Smiley dissects this national discourse with ten Black male friends over several days during a special road trip through Memphis and Nashville. While visiting places like the Lorraine Motel, where Dr. King died, and Stax records, credited with laying the roots of southern soul, Smiley and friends explore the diversity and complexity of the Black male experience in America-- past, present, and future. STAND reveals the journey of a unique group of scholars, musicians, comedians, and social critics as they gather for a rare reflection of brotherhood while confronting their own roles and responsibilities as pioneers of social progress. Special Features: Over 30 minutes of additional footage including conversations about the "N" word, R Kelly, intellectualism vs. faith/religion. Special acoustic performance by Country-Western singer Rissi Palmer. Parental Advisory: Occasional Strong Language

Format: DVD
I stumbled on "Stand" by chance. I was on the phone with my sister who was watching a cable health program that I could not get. I immediately hung-up the phone and called my cable station. As a result of adding the health channel, I received several other stations including TVOne. Later that evening I'm surfing the channels and stopped when I saw Tavis Smiley on a bus with Cornel West and Michael Eric Dyson. I was instantly pulled in.

What an experience! I felt like I was an invisible passenger on this amazing journey. I was given a unique view into the bond that unites these black men. I went through so many emotions during this bus trip. I laughed, cried, and got a little hungry by all that soul food. I was in awe by the memories, the depth of the discussions, and the spirit reaching music. I did not want the trip to end. I got off the bus energized, proud, and ready.

This is a must see...for every African-American male, young and old.
Mr. Smiley gathered several of his friends for dialogue on an array of
subjects. I was laughing one minute and crying the next.

I enjoyed this when I saw it on TV and knew I had to get DVD. As God would have it, I have been able to share this DVD with several young men that I work with who are just developing a foundation for living. I enjoyed how everyone added a little something to the conversation - without being antagonistic. When mature men (real men) do the simplest things it's a wonder to my eyes.

Again, going broke purchasing dvds for my library and feeling compelled to give to someone when it appears that they could be enlightened, enriched or informed.

It took me down memory lane by showing the path that our people had to endure. We still are being faced with this same type of discrimination in modern times.

This was one of the most powerful documentaries I've ever seen. The intellectual voices that are included and the discussions that take place gave me much food for thought! I'd recommend this film to everyone!
