‘The Least Among You’ ~ CFDb Movie Review & Recommendation
The Least Among You – Leaders are not chosen, they are called. Inspired by a true story. Richard Kelly (Cedric Sanders) is a black college graduate forced to serve probation at an all-white seminary after the 1965 Watts riots. Richard is encouraged by the seminary president, Alan Beckett, to break the color line.
Richard nears his breaking point when he meets Samuel (Louis Gossett, Jr.), an elderly janitor who lives in the basement of his dormitory. As Samuel guides Richard through the trials of racism and the personal life that haunts him, Richard undergoes a transformation that forces him to choose between his dreams and his destiny.
Another GREAT Christian film and with a fabulous cast. This is based on a true story and it’s a powerful one! There are some people where it’s obvious what God’s plan for that person’s life is. My favorite part was the speech that was given in the middle of the film which gives you a LOT to think about.
It’s heartbreaking to see what racism does to a person. I would love to say that is a thing of the past, but that would be unrealistic. Racism is alive today, as is persecution. What was really shocking to me was racism at a Christian school. A Christian who is a racist is NOT really a Christian.
I really LOVED this film! Hope you love it as much as I did.
