Powerful opening scene, surprise cut to Moscow, Russia and with a black African American on a stage (in 1962) and you have my attention.

This is a vividly told story that I would love to see on screen. The characters, setting, and insights into the political landscape of the 60's are well-drawn, and give context to a compelling history. Well done!
