I'm a 52 year old white man,and could never understand how slavery survived,but the James mink story was such a powerful film.I seen it free on Comcast free movies,and I tried to find out more about James Mink,but there dose'nt seem to be a lot about him on the internet,but I think everyone should see the James Mink story.
