Synopsis

More Than a Month
Black filmmaker Shukree Hassan Tilghman campaigns to end Black History Month. The effort takes him to Harvard, where he helps with a study on the psychological impact of Black History Month on blacks and whites; introduces him to the Sons of Confederate Veterans, who want to establish a Confederate History month; and leads him to Philadelphia, where black history is a high-school graduation requirement. Also: the commercial aspects of Black History Month are examined. ~ Jeff Gemmill, Rovi
