Brother Future 1991

T.J., a black, streetsmart city kid who thinks school and helping others is all a waste of time gets knocked out in a car accident. As he's lying unconscious, he is transported back in time to a slave auction block in the Old South. There the displaced urbanite is forced to work on a cotton plantation, and watch the stirrings of a slave revolt. T.J. sees the light and realizes how much opportunity he's been wasting in his own life. He comes to just a few moments later, but worlds away from who he was before. Part of the “Wonderworks” series. 110m/C VHS . Phill Lewis, Frank Converse, Carl Lumbly, Vonetta McGee; D: Roy Campanella; W: Roy Campanella.
