This movie is not just something for the screen, it is a complete work of art. Wrap your head around those you see on screen and listen to EVERY word that is in this movie. Not only did it bring me to tears, it moved my heart in a way that I have never been moved before. The poetry that runs through this film is similar to the works from that of Maya Angelou and others. Not only do I recommend that all those of African decent watch this, I invite those of all races to watch this movie to get a deeper understanding of the problems that face the African diaspora. Thank you Spike Lee and all actors for this masterpiece!
