'For Love Of Liberty: The Story Of America's Black Patriots', Premieres In February


'For Love of Liberty: The Story of America's Black Patriots' - An Epic Film Hosted by Halle Berry, Introduced by Colin Powell and Featuring a Who's Who of Entertainers - To Have its World Premiere on Both TV and DVD in February 2010

NEW YORK,  -- "For Love of Liberty: The Story of America's Black Patriots" ( - the untold saga of African Americans' courageous service to their country - will premiere on public television in February 2010, coinciding with Black History Month. (Check local listings.) Hosted by Halle Berry, narrated by Avery Brooks, and featuring an introduction by Colin Powell and choral arrangements by Andrae Crouch, the powerful four-hour, two-part HD film will also be released on DVD on February 9, 2010.

Ten years in the making, "For Love of Liberty" brings to life, completely and for the first time, over two hundred years of heroic exploits of African American fighting men and women. Filmmaker George Lucas calls the film "...a truly important work," while Ken Burns says, "I believe this is a story - both entertaining and educational - that is relevant to all Americans."

Through the innovative combination of personal writings and memorabilia, historical text, rare photographs, archival materials, location footage and reenactments, the film documents African Americans' sacrifice and service, from the Revolutionary War to the current battle against global terrorism. Their compelling stories are recounted through dramatic, off-camera readings by more than 40 talented entertainers and public figures, including: Morgan Freeman, Mel Gibson, Susan Sarandon, Louis Gossett, Jr., Ossie Davis, Robert Duvall, Danny Glover, Jeffrey Wright, Sam Elliott, Isaac Hayes, John Goodman, Jesse L. Martin, Peter Coyote, Ice-T, James Garner, Robert Townsend, Alan Rickman, Ruby Dee, John Amos, Eriq La Salle, Angela Bassett, Chris Cooper, Alfre Woodard, Cliff Robertson, Blair Underwood, Charles Dutton, Kris Kristofferson, Donald Sutherland, Isaiah Washington and many others.

"'For Love of Liberty' will forever change perceptions about the vital role African Americans have played during the entire course of U.S. military history," said Louis Gossett, Jr., also an executive producer.

"Our goal is to raise public consciousness about this extraordinary and little-known story," said Frank Martin, director, co-writer and co-producer. "The triumphant theme that echoes across the centuries - the price of liberty - is universal, timeless and meaningful for all people."
