Movie Reviews

Wake Up Black Man
SBLove99 | New Orleans, La. | 09/21/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a phemnomenal video and I will be recommending it and sharing it with other black men in my community. It debunks all the negative stereotypes we have about ourselves and it shows that WE as a people need to confront our issues, ourselves, not depend on outsiders to fix problems that they helped to create and profit from.

The only way we will get out of this mess is for us to MAN UP & drop all the negative influeneces that we have inherited from american society.

Much love & blessings to the brother Janks Morton..."
Massively brilliant and bold gift of truth

"The documentary is massively brilliant and bold. It is a gift of truth much needed. Janks Morton and the What Black Men Think collaborators are doing healing and teaching work! May they continue to produce quality and informative healing tools. I highly recommend that folks purchase the DVD copy. I watched it twice and gave it to my father to use in his diversity training work and leadership development mentoring with African American men. I think all fathers and sons should watch this documentary together. I also think that fraternities, men's organizations like the Masons, and other community-based service groups should view it and share it with younger men and boys. ALl families should look at it too."

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This video boldly confronts what is accepted as fact about today's black man - and demonstrates how much of what we think is true, is myth. Scene after scene shows us what the black community says about it's self and how that just doesn't square with the facts: prison, HIV, inter racial marriage, alimony payments, etc. In one scene, the camera shows us over and over members of the black community saying that there are more black men in prison than in college, when the fact is that for every black man in prison, there are four in college. More importantly, the video deals with the why and that involves following the money, because there are those who are cashing in big by keeping an intellectual status quo, that isn't real. Broad range of experts, footage from civil rights era, music - this video will keep anyone engaged. This is a story that must be told"
A Must See.....
Honest Opinion | 08/03/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was so surprised by how much I enjoyed this film. My wish is for everyone to see it. Does it ever make you wonder what happened to black men after the road was paved by Dr. King and others during the civil rights era? Most black men were very proud, hard working, revered and respected by their families, as well as one another. This film takes a look at black men of the past and black men of the present. It answers some tough questions and explores many issues that black men face today.This movie is presented by very intelligent black men, as well as by a brilliant panel of experts, telling you what black men really think. This film is entertaining, full of thought provoking and surprising information, has a great soundtrack, as well a sense of humor provided by producer/director/narrator, Janks Morton. There is no doubt that it will be enjoyed by all."
