( – “The film serves as a breath of fresh intellectual air, especially amid today’s sociopolitical climate. It is the power of representation in its best form. It is empowerment on a higher level.

(—“You are where you are today because you stand on somebody’s shoulders. And wherever you are heading, you cannot get there by yourself.

We exist temporarily through what we take, but we live forever through what we give.”—Vernon E. Jordan, Jr.
