Inspired by a True Legend
Emperor is a fascinating and entertaining film, especially since the story is based on a real man and actual historical events.
When I was a child going to school, I thought I was learning complete facts about history.
Now that I’m an adult, I understand that there is much, much more to learn.
Freedom fighter Shields “Emperor” Green wasn’t included in history classes, when I was a kid.
However, this brave man played a significant role in US history.
I’m glad that I am now acquainted with Emperor and his contributions to the abolitionist movement.
This isn’t a documentary, but is inspired by the man and real events.
It is exciting as entertainment and, also, inspirational and thought provoking.
