“Stubborn As A Mule” is an internationally award winning documentary that has been ten years in the making about reparations produced and directed by Arcelious Daniels.  Miller Bargeron Jr. and Albert A. George Jr. also helped create the film.

The documentary explores the historical, philosophical, physical, psychological, economic, and legal issues of slavery that support the case for reparations.

The film also uses interviews with academics and intellectuals to examine the truth about slavery and its effects and also expose the resistant attitudes of Americans towards the idea of reparations.

The film includes information from Dr. Cornel West, Dr. Robert St. Martin Westley, Dr. Preston T. King, Dr. Charles Elmore, and Dr. Na’im Akbar.

It also discusses H.R. 40, a bill that US Congressman John Conyers has been introducing since 1989 that seeks to acknowledge the “fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of slavery in the United States and the 13 American colonies between 1619 and 1865.”  The bill seeks to have slavery and the racial and economic discrimination that comes from it’s legacy examined so recommendations can be made to Congress about “appropriate remedies.”

The film has won multiple international awards including Best Diaspora Documentary for the 2011 Africa Movie Academy Awards in Nigeria, Best International Film at the 2010 Music Video Screen Awards in the United Kingdom, Best Film on Matters Relating to the Black Experience/Marginalized People at the 2011 Black International Cinema Awards in Germany, athe Award of Merit at the 2010 Accolade Competition in LaJolla, CA, and the Director’s Choice Award at the 2010 Portland African-American Film Festival in Portland, Oregon.

For a deeper look at the African American experience in America and to understand why reparations are a necessary component of acknowledging the atrocities of slavery and inequality, check out the full documentary below:
