Rated 5 out of 5★ by 8reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by This is an amazing movie!!! The truth shall set you free indeed! It was wonderful to see so many people awake and realizing that we all have been lied to. May these great leaders prosper and take this message to all. God bless them and protect them!!! 10/20/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Tear Jerking The truth of a nation. The truth of a people wanting to be free. The truth of not a skin color but of a desire to find your own happiness.Thank you C. L. Bryant for bring together freedom lovers across the country. 10/21/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by What an eye opening film There were a lot of things I learned about both the republicans and democrats in this film. It really tells you how government is still enslaving the black community, and how they are now taking that model to reach out and enslave the rest of America. Everyone should see this film. I was especially surprised to learn how the government systematically destroyed the black family structure under LBJ. And this is a fact that is provable through recorded documentation! Definitely a must see! 10/20/2012
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Interesting, honest, historical documentary Very truthful look at history and a rude awakening to the fact that some who have been freed and/or are free are letting themselves lose that freedom with the present view they have on politics...We are all becoming slaves ...It is time for a honest look at whats really going on and C L Bryant depicts that greatly in this documentary!! 01/14/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Tells the Truth I heard about this documentary on the internet and downloaded it to my computer. It was pretty amazing. They just speak the truth and it's not just one group's's America's truth. I learned a lot of things that I had no idea about. After I saw the digital version, I bought copies for friends. Now they are buying copies to give away too. Worth much more than the price of the video. 01/14/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Exceeded expectations...RIVETING This movie is for every color of American-- I learned so much, and it was presented in a way that I could not get off the couch. I was afraid I'd miss something. Black Americans will appreciate hearing from dozens of black people on the real history of black America and we finally start getting to the bottom of what motivates the NAACP. This documentary is just a must see. We'll be sharing it around. 02/27/2013
Rated 5 out of 5★ by Very good movie Well done. A story that definitely needed to be told 11/15/2013
