I find it interesting movies/documentaries on certain topics here are still on order already have dozens of 5 star reviews without a single comment - implying it's done by the staff.

Good movie - but left me wondering how does today's left, with their hostile anti-religious and abortion platforms reconcile themselves with saying they stand up for Blacks' values and rights as depicted here? I always wonder that when watching films like this. I guess we forget that Abraham Lincoln was a Republican.
