Rating: 2.5/4 -- If this were a 1970s TV movie, it probably would have won a boatload of Emmys. Now, it lacks impact, although parents or grandparents worried their children don't appreciate the sacrifices of decades past might want to use it as a teaching tool. Full Review

Rating: 4/4 -- Riveting, Real-Life, Civil Rights-Era Drama Released on DVD. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- Beautifully shot and well-acted, if earnest, overlong and unfocused.

Along the way there are many fine, precisely observed moments showing what race relations were like in this little tobacco town at the turn of the decade. Full Review
Rating: 2/5 -- You can't deny the inspirational qualities of the story or Parker's screen presence, any more than you could accuse the film of subtlety or of masking its conspicuous pro-Christian agenda.
Author Timothy Tyson's acclaimed novel is adapted for the screen in this sweeping civil rights drama from director Jeb Stuart. Set in Oxford, NC, in the 1970s, BLOOD DONE SIGN MY NAME tells the tale of Civil Rights leader Dr. Ben Chavis (Nate Parker), who played a pivotal role in desegregating North Carolina's public school system, and who would go on to become the youngest-ever executive director and CEO of the NAACP. The film centers on the racial tensions that flared after a white father and son were charged with murdering a black man, and were subsequently acquitted of the crime despite the fact that it took place in full view of the public.
