harsh reality
21 November 2018 | by SuzRa1See all my reviews

I don't follow basketball, so some things were new to me. I AM an adamant civil rights proponent. This documentary is an important testament to race relations. I hope Jay-Z is right about change because, right now, things aren't looking so good.
