Lionel Rogosin took the fight for equality to his homeland with his astonishing fourth feature BLACK ROOTS. The extraordinary cast, including Reverend Frederick Douglass Kirkpatrick, attorney and feminist activist Florynce "Flo" Kennedy, musicians Jim Collier, Wende Smith, Larry Johnson and Reverend Gary Davis tell stories of heartbreak and despair while their songs blow the roof off the rafters. A deeply humanist film, BLACK ROOTS combines tales of oppression with hauntingly beautiful images of the faces of black men, women and children.
