"Sophie And The Moon Hanger": A woman pits herself against her husband and his Ku Klux Klan member friends when she learns that they are planning an attack against her black maid and her husband. "The River Niger": An all-star cast performs in this film adaptation of the Tony Award(R) winning off-Broadway hit play. In this gripping, intimate look at life in the ghetto, Johnny Williams is a house painter who moonlights as a poet, struggling to financially and emotionally support his cancer-ridden wife Mattie. "Cry, The Beloved Country": In a land torn by hatred and injustice, James Earl Jones and Richard Harris are two fathers - one a man of peace, the other a man of power and privilege - whose lives seem destined for a violent collision. But instead, in the wake of a tragic killing, these extraordinary men form an unlikely union... and together find the kind of understanding that could heal a nation. "A Gathering Of Old Men": A regular day in a Louisiana sugarcane plantation changes course when a local white farmer is shot. Led by Mathu, a group of old, black men takes a courageous step by coming forward en masse to take responsibility for the killing of a white racist, whom one of their members has shot. "Resting Place": Nominated for two Prime Time Emmy Awards(R), "Resting Place" is the story of one man's fight to give a soldier, killed in action, an honorable burial.

These movies were not just "Black" movies, they were movies of substance, adequately portraying history in a way which personally took me back to that place in time. After viewing, I felt a sense of peace, not tormented to a point of violent thoughts. There is only one thing that stopped me from rating it "excellent" there was one movie of very poor quality. It might have been that the movie was too old and was converted to color from a black and white movie. Not sure; however, it was difficult to focus on the movie as the quality was so poor.

Love the setting of these movies. Wonderful to watch on a rainy day or when you have some free uninterupted time. If you like movies like The Color Purple or Roots you will enjoy this collection. They are just not as long.
