Civil Rights hero? Thug? Martyr? Criminal? Gary Dourdan stars as George Jackson in Black August. George Jackson (Dourdan--"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation") was sent to prison at age 18 for stealing $70. He never came out. He studied, became an activist, a leader and a best-selling author--and he died behind bars in 1971. A failed prison break or an assassination by the FBI in an attempt to destroy the Black Panthers and their movement? This true drama examines a part of recent United States history that remains controversial to this day.

This was a powerful movie and the historic footage at the end was moving. Honestly, in all my time of learning about the civil rights movement, I never heard of this guy. Gary Dourdan was great.
