“Stubborn As A Mule” is an internationally award winning documentary that has been ten years in the making about reparations produced and directed by Arcelious Daniels.  Miller Bargeron Jr. and Albert A. George Jr. also helped create the film.

The documentary explores the historical, philosophical, physical, psychological, economic, and legal issues of slavery that support the case for reparations.

The film also uses interviews with academics and intellectuals to examine the truth about slavery and its effects and also expose the resistant attitudes of Americans towards the idea of reparations.

The film includes information from Dr. Cornel West, Dr. Robert St. Martin Westley, Dr. Preston T. King, Dr. Charles Elmore, and Dr. Na’im Akbar.

It also discusses H.R. 40, a bill that US Congressman John Conyers has been introducing since 1989 that seeks to acknowledge the “fundamental injustice, cruelty, brutality, and inhumanity of slavery in the United States and the 13 American colonies between 1619 and 1865.”  The bill seeks to have slavery and the racial and economic discrimination that comes from it’s legacy examined so recommendations can be made to Congress about “appropriate remedies.”
