A very important work to explain a critically needed institution, the Independent Press. Journalists were trained to do their "homework" with fact checked or eyewitness news reporting. None of which happens much today. Excellent presentation!

Powerful and informative history of African American newspapers in the US. Five stars.

Hands down, one of the best films about African American life during the decades, and especially during the days of Jim Crow & WWII. There is always a danger of having a cultural grapevine labeled as a "fake news" source. This is a critical film for everyone to watch.
