This one-hour documentary is beautifully focused on the role of African-American laborers throughout the history of the steel industry. It is suffused with the filmmaker’s passion for revealing what had been deliberately overlooked: that black laborers most often had the grittiest, most dangerous jobs in the mines and the mills, and they never rose up through the ranks into management. This is independent filmmaking at its very best, simply produced by a retired steelworker with a mission and his filmmaker friend.
