Awhile ago, I attended the pre-screening & discussion of the movie Race, the sports-biopic of Jesse Owens, starring Stephen James and directed by Stephen Hopkins. The event, hosted by NBC Comcast was wonderful. Not only did were both the director and the main star in attendance (and of course very important people in the audience), Mr. Owens eldest daughter and his granddaughter were on the panel as well. The audience was filled with people of all ages including tons of youth. It was a nice event to attend. The movie was very inspiring for all who attended.
If you have not gotten the chance to see this movie and it is still showing in your area, go see it – you would not regret it. If it is not showing, keep an eye out for it on DVD.
