    "I loved Denzel Washington's acting prowess in this movie. It was very cinematic for me. Time will come that I will let my brother watch this biography and educational tribute film so he would be aware of the timeless pursuit of a black activist who wants nothing but black liberation and for the black people to be recognized through some unusual civil rights movement."

My faith in humanity is restored after watching this. Imagine one man who aims to save thousands of lives amidst the life-threatening danger that would kill him."

    "As an aspiring football player, I find this movie very inspirational as it is also based on the true story of the ups and downs of a football team in Virginia. It makes me sad that racist comments and some racial discrimination scenes truly happened before/ I mean, how can people be so mean?"
