Documentary filmmaker Aviva Kempner '76 published a blog post in The Wrap on "Lincoln" and "Pullman Porter Blues" as important examples of historical fiction.
Kempner writes, "Hopefully "Pullman Porter Blues" will reach Broadway and other cities
and "Lincoln" will continue to perform well at the box office so that we
as American citizens can appreciate the obstacles confronting the
freedom and economical advancement of African-Americans."
