      Audience Member Good Made for TV (Showtime) movie. The story is very powerful, but the limited budget on this movie holds it back. Charles S. Dutton is great and so is Andre Braugher, but the production value is pretty low and I wish Showtime could have put a few more $$$ into the budget. The movie's subject matter could use a retelling with the current events of today. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member Great movie Great movie Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/06/20 Full Review Audience Member Excellent Movie about African American Railway Porters nicknamed "George" (which was disrespectful ), & their struggle to Unionize & ones struggle to go on to College. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie is partiularly inspirational to me because I've been involved with Labor Unions & have represented people that were being mistreated by corrupted and abusive management. This movie is definitely worth seeing if you have any interest at all in your own rights. It's about Asa Philip Randolph & his efforts to organize the black porters of the Pullman Rail Company. After all the years of fighting for equality and Civil Rights you'd think that this kind of corruption would be a thing of the past - but it's not. This true story happened in the 1920's and the same kind of crap goes on today - if we don't learn from the lessons of the past we are bound to repeat them over & over & over again. If you're living in the twentieth century and singing “We Shall Overcome” that means that the government has failed to live up to the promise that was set forth in our constitution. This is part of what’s wrong with todays labor movement — we do too much singing and not enough swinging.
