How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
During WWII at Port Chicago near San Francisco, Black enlisted men in the Navy were forced to load ships with deadly weapons even after 320 men were killed in an explosion.The men were willing to fight in the war, but the Navy was racially biased not allowing the Black men in combat. A dramatic trial reveals the prejudice of the Naval officers. Only during the Clinton administration, we were told, were the three living survivors pardoned of the crime. Acting and direction excellent. One narration at end seems out of character.
