This segment of GLOBAL IMPACT addresses the upcoming PBS film "For Love of Liberty" covering the untold saga of African Americans courageous service to their country. The story spans the Revolutionary War to the Iraq War and examines why, despite enormous injustice, these heroic men and women fought so valiantly. The film was co-produced by Frank Martin and Louis Gossett, Jr. Our special guest will be Frank Martin - EMMY Award Winning Writer, Director, and Co-Producer of the film. Frank Martin's diverse production history includes over 200 hours of prime-time television programming for CBS, ABC, TNT, PBS, Showtime, Disney and Playboy TV. Non-broadcast projects include material for the Department of Defense, Army, Navy and the White House. Among Martin's notable productions are: John Huston: The Man, The Movies, The Maverick, winner of the Sundance Film Festival Filmmaker's Trophy; MGM: When the Lion Roars, Primetime Emmy Award winner for Outstanding Informational Series; CBS: The First Fifty Years; and Mr. K: A Common Man with Uncommon Vision, winner of two Middle America Emmy Awards. The film is introduced by former Secretary of State Colin Powell, hosted on camera by Halle Berry, and narrated by Avery Brooks with readings by Morgan Freeman, Mel Gibson, Ossie Davis, Robert Duvall, Danny Glover, Angela Bassett and others. The theme of the film, the price of liberty, is relevant to all Americans. The film will air nationwide on PBS in February 2010.
