"Stubborn as a Mule," an award-winning film, has been uploaded to YouTube.com in honor of Black History Month 2013.
Originally released in February 2011 via DVD, "Stubborn as a Mule" enjoyed a successful film festival run garnering five awards from around the world. The producers of the film felt the rich African-American history that is included in the film needed to be shared with the world.
Miller Bargeron, one of the film's directors/producers said, "The film contains a lot African-American history that is not a part of most educational system's curriculums. We felt it was our responsibility to share these little known African-American history facts that helped build the United States into what it is today."
"Stubborn As A Mule" is a contemporary look at historical facts surrounding the call for Reparations for African-Americans. In the process, "Stubborn as a Mule" takes a retrospective look at African-American/American history dating back to the U. S. Civil War. This historical journey is facilitated by such renowned intellectual luminaries as Dr. Cornell West of Princeton University and Dr. Na'im Akbar of Florida State University.
Awards for "Stubborn as a Mule" include a 2011 Africa Movie Academy Award (Nigeria, Africa), 2010 Music Video and Screen Awards (Birmingham, United Kingdom), and three other awards.
