"I stumbled on "Stand" by chance. I was on the phone with my sister who was watching a cable health program that I could not get. I immediately hung-up the phone and called my cable station. As a result of adding the health channel, I received several other stations including TVOne. Later that evening I'm surfing the channels and stopped when I saw Tavis Smiley on a bus with Cornel West and Michael Eric Dyson. I was instantly pulled in.
What an experience! I felt like I was an invisible passenger on this amazing journey. I was given a unique view into the bond that unites these black men. I went through so many emotions during this bus trip. I laughed, cried, and got a little hungry by all that soul food. I was in awe by the memories, the depth of the discussions, and the spirit reaching music. I did not want the trip to end. I got off the bus energized, proud, and ready.
Every Black home should have a copy

"I too, ran across this program quite by accident and I was riveted until the last credit. Mr. Smiley and company really captured the mission of the trip, the history of the mission and the oh so lively debates. I plan on buying a copy for all of the strong, good, black men in my life. They should know about this DVD"

"This is a must see...for every African-American male, young and old.
Mr. Smiley gathered several of his friends for dialogue on an array of
subjects. I was laughing one minute and crying the next."
