Giving Voice – the documentary The New York Times is hailing as “inspirational” and “fulfilling” and The Daily Beast calls “one of this year’s most inspiring films” is streaming now on Netflix!
From Executive Producers Viola Davis and John Legend, Giving Voice follows inner city teens striving for greatness in the annual August Wilson Monologue Competition. Through the artist’s words, these amazing youths bring new meaning to Black life in America.
“In addition to hearing themselves in the voices of these characters, the kids hear their aunts, uncles, grandparents and neighbors, too,” says Robert Daniels, critic for The New York Times. “They hear the timeless struggle of Black America reaching across the generations. They heave the emotional weight of Ma Rainey, Cutler and Hedley with a maturity far beyond their years and come out empowered. And in capturing these moments, ‘Giving Voice’ becomes as inspirational as Wilson’s words, as fulfilling as each teen’s declaration of self-worth.”
