but a re-enactment of historical events with some poetic license. Truth is usually more fantastic than fiction.
It certainly capped my month long dive into black history month. What a plethora of material. It certainly changed my outlook on a lot (all the PBS series plus a few of these movies as well, taken altogether).
Thanks for the clip of Billie Holiday as it really does justice to her musical style more than the movie was capable of. This movie wasn't about music.
