Part of Community series Senior Cinema
Directed by Michael Roemer | 1964

With Ivan Dixon, Abbey Lincoln, Julius Harris

“One of the great American independent films”
—Amy Taubin, Artforum

Shot in 1963—during the tumultuous summer of Medgar Evers’ assassination, George Wallace’s stand at the schoolhouse door at the University of Alabama, and the March on Washington—Nothing But a Man follows Duff Anderson, a black railroad worker who marries a preacher’s daughter (jazz legend Abbey Lincoln). But his growing radicalism begins to threaten his relationships with those around him. According to film historian Donald Bogle: “No other American film has yet treated a black male/female relationship with as much sensitivity.”
