By Steve Ramm TOP 100 REVIEWER on January 20, 2013
Format: DVD
Director Tilghman is a black Michael Moore - providing thought-provoking questions with a bit of self-deprecating humor. DVD has 15 minutes of outtakes.

This 2011 documentary may have aired on PBS last year- or it may be airing next month (February 2013) as part of Black History Month - but it's making it's home video debut on January 29, 2013. And what a timely piece!

Though it's rare important for a reviewer to state their ethnic heritage in a review, I feel it helpful to state that I am not an African-American. I found the "question" raided by documentary filmmaker Shukee Hassan Tilghman - Should we end Black History Month (and make it part of the core history programs in American history in school curriculum)? - a fascinating one. Here was a young (he appears to be in his late 20s) black man who is asking the question. As he interviews his parents and heads to New York, Atlanta and Philadelphia to do interviews, he questions his own question. The first part of the film - where he sets out to have people sign petitions in Times Square reminds me a lot of Michael Moore's films. Both are self-narrated. It gets a bit more serious - but not mundane - as the 54-minute film continues. I certainly enjoyed it and at gave me "food for thought".

The DVD has seven "deleted scenes" - each running about 2-minutes. One titled "Good, Bad and Ugly History" obviously had to be excised for public TV showing. It features a black woman who collects the often-shocking racist advertising images that were produced in the early 20th Century. This is one deleted scene that I recommend that any parent of a child under 12 years old preview first - before showing to their child. There needs to be an discussion as to why these images existed.
