“For Love of Liberty,” co-written by Jeff Stetson and director Frank Martin, is a four-hour documentary that explores the role and contributions of African American men and women in the military from pre-Revolution to the Iraq War.
Airing tonight on PBS, the documentary examines how a people so often denied freedom fought heroically to preserve the freedom of their fellow countrymen.
“At a time when Hollywood so easily and consistently depicts African American men as gangsters, brutes, drug dealers and abusers of their children and families, I am very proud to share the typical and normal experiences of ordinary black men and women who did extraordinary things so that we, their descendants, might celebrate their achievements and enjoy the freedom they secured,” says Stetson.
