  • An inspiring look at success stories of African American luminaries of every ilk, this documentary tells the stories of those who refused the lot handed out by an oppressive society, and pursued something greater. Highlighting the courage it took to make the dreams of these artists and visionaries come true, audiences experience the importance of standing up for one's beliefs, and fighting for a voice in the face of any opposition. The segment on actor, humanitarian, and singer Harry Belafonte reveals a brave man unafraid of controversial, who denied the roles created for him by all sides. Nikki Giovannis's strength and dedication to the struggle of African Americans comes through in her wise, confrontational, and loving poetry, built on the rhythms and traditions of Black people. The glowing career of Vernon Jordan traces an ascendance to power in Washington that began with his years in the civil rights movement, and Angela Y. Davis' commitment to overthrowing all forms of oppression, most recently in the prison system, is also highlighted. Ultimately a tribute to the strength of spirit exhibited by these artists and visionaries, COURAGE is a stirring call to those who might follow in their wake.
