Nothing But A Man (92 min.) (1964) (Drama)
By Michael Roemer
This drama shows the conditions of Black workers in the 1960’s in the context of a love story between railroad section hand and preacher’s daughter. The racist and class discrimination facing railroad worker Ivan Dixon as Duff when he is about to marry Abie Lincoln as Josie is stark. He refuses to play the “uncle Tom game” and faces a difficult future. This is the growing condition for millions of Black workers in the United States who are facing massive unemployment and deprivation.
Winnner of 1964 Vencie Film Festival San Giorgio Prize
and 1993 National Film Presevation Registry
