The Morehouse Men

Running Time: N/A

"I have a dream..." are some of the most famous words used in history to express the state of a society undergoing momentous change in thought and action, and although Reverend Martin Luther King was assassinated for his dream, his words continue to ring true in the hearts and minds of today's youth. Known as the 'Black Harvard' to it's students, Morehouse College has been able to pride itself on having such graduates as Olympic Gold Medalist Edwin Moses, film director Spike Lee, 'Ebony' magazine publisher Lerone Bennett, and Reverend Martin Luther King. Located in Atlanta, Georgia, it has become one of the most prestigious and most respected universities in the United States due to the dreams of it's founders and students. Over the course of one year, director Sabita Kumari-Dass takes her camera through the doors of this grooming ground for young men, providing a rare and positive look at the traditions, philosophies, and experiences of the young African-American men of Morehouse. The film's "intimate observational style" also includes footage never seen outside of the college walls, as it focuses on several individuals and their personal growth. The difference between this film and most about today's youth is that it offers us the other side of the coin, giving an inspirational message about dreams and a look at a college whose mission is to create the first black President of America. -- Mike Rabehl
