I knew this was going to be bad,but not so bad,that my mind was instantly forgetting and skipping certain details of the teleplay.Mary J. Blige should stick with singing,and never,ever try to act and executive produce a movie ever again for the rest of her life period.Mary J. Blige CANNOT act to save her life period.Not surprisingly,Lifetime,as well as Mary J. Blige,made sure this was going to be EXTREMELY SANITIZED on all of the real life details about the husbands of Betty & Coretta,as well as the real life details about the wives most definitely of these slain political black activists period.

What is most inspiring about the story of the wives of murdered human rights activists is the fact that these individuals had CAUSE and they were willing sacrifice much for CAUSE. Most people are content to go through life without cause so that they do not bother anybody, but for anyone that wants to make a positive impact in a negative world, you need to have CAUSE and to change the world you have to be willing to make the sacrifice. I was inspiried, as always with black history-related stories.
