I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and was immersed in the unspeakable truths and realizations. It was definitely inspiring, not just momentary inspiration, but inspiration that comes from deep within one's soul. I am more convinced of the power of knowledge and the importance for all mankind to avail themselves of it. Education is key to our success. We must educate ourselves about our own history, and those that paved the way for us. I realize that this movie sensationalized some of the characters lives, yet it served its purpose which I believe was to motivate people to action, to unlock what Denzel (Prof. Mel Tolson in movie) describes as "the chains on our minds" so that we can recognize our potential and then do something with it. I applaud the director, producers, actors and most importantly the individuals that inspired the movie.
