ARANDAS JOHNSON certified reviewer June 20, 2019
Two wealthy African-American entertainers at the height of their careers take a trip to Greenwood Mississippi in 1964. Harry Belafonte & Sidney Poitier, travel to complete a task there, which as you can imagine is the last place you’d want to be in 1964 as an African-American. The acting is top tier and the writing is clever.
