Keep the Faith, Baby


Keep the Faith, Baby
In the world of wartime American politics there was never going to be room for a larger than life congressman with an unconventional style. Especially when his outspoken views and gutsy determination would spearhead a movement that aimed to make life better for African-Americans.

Adam Clayton Powell (Harry Lennix) started out as a preacher from Harlem in the early 1940s. His passion for justice and flair for uniting the community soon led to an impressive two-decade career which saw him shake up American Congress and target the deep-rooted racism that ran through the establishment. Powell was naturally charming and a notorious ladies man. His conquests even included the famous diva pianist, Hazel Scott (Vanessa Williams).

But his maverick nature was also widely resented and his enemies managed to rally enough support to have him thrown out of congress on charges of misconduct.

This amazing true story is told through the eyes of a young journalist who visits the retired Powell in his fishing-village retreat, only to find that the years did little to dull the winning charisma and charm of a true twentieth century icon.

102 minutes, Parental Guidance.
