3. I had no idea what a wonderful actor

Oprah Winfrey is!

The depiction of racism was so relentless and effective. So timely. Those motherfuckers never went away!!!! In fact, you could say they are worse than ever.

The end where he meets Obama... I do remember something about the real story when it went down.

6. You bet!

Whitaker is remarkable in this role. So moving!

The storytelling reminded me a little of Gump.

Enjoy!
