Film Screening - "For Love of Liberty: The Story of America's Black Patriots”

Tennessee State University will host a screening of the documentary film, “For Love of Liberty: The Story of America's Black Patriots,” concurrent with the University’s Black History Month celebrations. Filmmaker Frank Martin will introduce the film and conduct a panel discussion.


Hosted by Halle Berry, narrated by Avery Brooks, and featuring an introduction by Colin Powell and choral arrangements by Andrae Crouch, this powerful film reveals the untold saga of African Americans' courageous service to their country and their sacrifice spanning from the Revolutionary War to the current battle against global terrorism.

More than two hundred years of heroic exploits of African American fighting men and women will be brought to life as the film’s compelling stories are recounted through dramatic, off-camera readings by more than 40 talented entertainers and public figures. 

The screening will consist of a 40-minute cut of the four-hour film. The event is free and open to the public. For more information, contact the Department of Media Relations at 615-963-5331.
