Performers, Cast and Crew:
Faith has been known to move mountains, and this can be attested to by the African American luminaries featured in the second volume of the HISTORY MAKERS series. The struggles of those in the Black community to achieve their hopes and dreams can be monumental, but this documentary is an inspirational testament to the possibilities inherent in keeping dreams alive on the way to overcoming obstacles. The spiritual depth of ESSENCE MAGAZINE editorial director Susan L. Taylor--who also pens the "In the Spirit" column each month--is apparent in the story of her rise to success. Faith has supported the advancement of artists and visionaries as diverse as actress Kim Fields (THE FACTS OF LIFE), Reverend Al Sharpton, and blues legend BB King, all of whom share a belief in themselves, their community, and the betterment of humanity. Delivering a positive message tempered by the harsh realities faced by the Black diaspora, FAITH illustrates the power of unshakeable belief in a world full of stumbling blocks.
