10,000 Black Men Named George
During the Depression, gainful employment is practically nonexistent for African-Americans. The only available jobs are as porters for the Pullman Rail Company (which pays blacks one-third of what white employees make). Journalist Philip Randolph (Andre Braugher) makes it his mission to help these forgotten workers — called “George,” after company founder George Pullman — and helps form the first black union in America. Robert Townsend directs.
The Sacred Conversation encourages wholesome, respectful relationships across borders that separate people by race, beliefs, culture, economics, gender, and other factors in order to create new experiences of trust and peace building.
