“Nothing But a Man”

A landmark independent film—surpressed after its initial release—Nothing But a Man is dramatic portrayal of the struggles and hardships of Black life in 1960’s America. This quietly moving, beautiful film remains as relevant today as it was then.

Set against the rise of the civil rights movement the film tells the story of Duff, a railroad section hand, who is forced to confront virulent racism with Josie, a preacher’s daughter. Nothing But a Man is devastingly powerful film about the struggle for the basic necessities of dignity and respect. Starring Ivan Dixon and jazz great Abbey Lincoln. Music by Mary Wells, Martha and the Vandellas, the Miracles, the Marvellettes, Stevie Wonder and others. 1964, 92min., directed by Michael Roemer.
