Description & Features+

When the Great Depression struck America in the 1920's finding work was hard, but if you were poor and black it was virtually impossible. Working as a porter for the Pullman Rail Company was an option, but it meant taking home a third as much as white employees and working some days for free. You could forget about being called by your real name - all black porters were called "George" after George Pullman, the first person to employ emancipated slaves. Asa Phillip Randolph, a black journalist and educated socialist trying to establish a voice for these forgotten workers, agrees to fight for the Pullman porters' cause and form the first black union in America. Livelihoods and lives would be put at risk in the attempt to gain 10,000 signatures of the men known only as "George." This is the true story of how a courageous leader came to be known as "the most dangerous man in America.".

10,000 Black Men Named George is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome!!!! I had to rent this movie for my son's history project last year and boy was I surprise with the superb story line. I didn't question the acting because there are some fine actors in this movie!!! (Mario Van Peebles, Charles S. Dutton and Andre Braugher are some fine black men!!!) With Robert Townsend directing I was is in doubt but this was some fine directing he did. I just had to buy this for my movie collection.
