George Dawson has seen 102 years pass by. He has been around for the civil rights movement and his family members were once slaves.

Underprivileged, impoverished and uneducated, his family had to struggle to gain their freedom and independence. George grew up in that environment, where he worked all his life.

Retired at the age of 98, he decided to learn to read because he finally had the privilege to do so. This inspirational man and the lifetime ordeal he's been through is even more powerful and inspiring in light of today's continuing civil and social achievements, including Mandela's presidency in South Africa, and Obama's presidency in the U.S.

I am so grateful that I watched this documentary. How inspirational, and what a great role model. This is a film that should be shown in schools to help young minds grasp the sacrifice and the greatness of those that came before us, and blazed a trail of honor for us to follow.
