Nothing But A Man

1964, 92 minutes, black and white, written by Michael Roemer and Robert Young, directed by Michael Roemer

Set against the stirrings of the civil rights movement and a rising wave of burgeoning black pride, Nothing But A Man tells the story of Duff, a railroad section hand, who is forced to confront racial prejudice and self-denial when he falls in love with Josie, an educated preacher’s daughter.  Called “one of the most sensitive films about black life ever made in this country” (The Washington Post), the film explores the painful nuances of life in the 1960s South and themes of fatherhood and sacrifice.

Perry Greene, vice president of diversity and inclusion at Adelphi will lead a discussion following the film.

This spring, the Adelphi University Department of History will host a series of film screenings exploring the history of immigration, migration and race. At the conclusion of each screening, a member of the Adelphi faculty will lead a discussion about the film with the audience. All screenings will take place in the Concert Hall and are free and open to the public.
