Editorial Reviews

Leaders are not chosen, they are called. Inspired by a true story. Richard Kelly (Cedric Sanders) is a black college graduate forced to serve probation at an all-white seminary after the 1965 Watts riots. Richard is encouraged by the seminary president, Alan Beckett, to break the color line. Richard nears his breaking point when he meets Samuel (Louis Gossett, Jr.), an elderly janitor who lives in the basement of his dormitory. As Samuel guides Richard through the trials of racism and the personal life that haunts him, Richard undergoes a transformation that forces him to choose between his dreams and his destiny.

He is encouraged by the president to break the racial barriers, but he finds no support from professors and his roommate is the only student who will stand by him.
Scott Elliott
Overall, a great movie that I greatly enjoyed and highly recommend.

I was privileged to see a preview copy of Mark Young's remarkable film about Richard Kelly, the first black to break the color barrier of an all white seminary during the racial unrest of the 1960s. The film is beautifully violent, Christian no doubt in its themes but in no way preachy. The racial context is in fact color blind, speaking to anyone at any time who has ever felt isolated, and in that finds the core of his real being. Every member of the cast shines in a unique way that makes the whole film a stellar tour de force.

This is my sister's review.

Richard Kelly is serving time in jail having been accused of committing a horrible crime. Although he states his innocence, he has two choices. One of which is attending an all-white seminary. Richard has dreams that doesn't involve preaching, but he finds this choice better than jail.
Very few accept Richard, and as he copes with his new probabtion sentence, he learns that friends he had before seem against him as well. During this time, his mom becomes terribly ill and needs extreme medical care. The doctors first need five thousand dollars to treat her. Can he get through this? Richard faces recurring dreams that he can't seem to understand. He meets "the gardener in the basement," and begins to realize what his purpose in life truly is, and he is a true friend.
While Richard is trying to achieve his goal, he is rejected by many that cannot see past race. He begins to see how much strength he really has mentally. Richard is threatened by the seminary president that if he follows through with his goals, he will be put back into jail.
Find out how this young man handled these situations and trials. This is a very good movie that teaches us that God has control and has His own plans in our lives. In God's eyes everyone is equal and we should see everyone the same as well.

The set-up that brings Richard to the seminary is quick. After that, we see the many obstacles that he faces as well as the support he receives from Samuel. As Richard meets challenge after challenge, layers of deception and disloyalty are uncovered. In the end, this is a story of redemption and of doing the right thing, even in the face of adversity.

I found the story compelling; the rest of my family had reactions from "Good, not great" to "Do I have to watch this?" My only caveat would be this: because of the theme and some violence, I wouldn't recommend this for younger children. I encouraged my 13-year-old to watch it, but I don't think I'd show it to younger children.

This is an excellent DVD. I like movies that are based on true stories and this one didn't disappoint me. "The Least Among You" was set in 1965, It tells the story of Richard Kelly -Cedric Sanders-, he's sent to an all-white seminary for 2 semesters as part of his probation at his mom's suggestion. One person who really helped Richard was a humble caretaker, Samuel Benton-Louis Gossett, Jr- The acting is magnificent.
Kate Allison-Lauren Holly- played a troubled teacher that once was a missionary. She has something in her past that is making her so sad. Parts of this wonderful movie will bring you sadness, joy, tears and leave you in awe.
To me it is so sad that people were treated so badly and it wasn't so long ago either. It should make us think what kind of people were we or are now. This movie will really get you to thinking and tell you even one person can make a difference if you only try.
I highly recommend this for your collection. We watched it twice already and have only had it a couple of days. Wonderful movie with brilliant actors.

I had no idea. I really didn't. Our country has been through so much. This was a great movie to illustrate the struggle without our country and within our hearts with racism and with loving others as yourself.

There were so many characters in this movie with their own struggles not just with racism but with trusting God. I was able to understand the character development and follow the storyline with ease. I wanted to see more about these people and learn who happens to them next. The story is more than just about Richard Kelly. It's about you and about me and doing what is right even when it is hard.

At first, I as taken aback by the PG-13 rating. How can a family movie be rated PG-13? Well, this movie has tough issue that will be hard for a middle schooler to fully understand. Human frailty is not new, but it is hard to understand. Now I understand the rating and am glad that it is not rated a feel-good-family-movie. It is a terrific story that I highly recommend.

To comply with new regulations introduced by the Federal Trade Commission, I must post that Thomas Nelson has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book to review. I also must say that the opinions are all mine.
