 The Butler is a 2013 American historical drama film directed and produced by Lee Daniels (1959- ) and written by Danny Strong (1974- ). Loosely based on the real life of Eugene Allen, the film star Forest Whitaker as Cecil Gaines, an African-American who eyewitnesses notable events of the 20th century during his 34-year tenure serving as a White House butler. From this unique vantage point, The Butler traces the dramatic changes that swept the American society, from the Civil Rights Movement to Vietnam War and beyond, and how those changes affected this man’ life and his family.
The American Civil Rights Movement (1955-1968) was a biblically based movement that had significant social and political consequences for the United States. The most important component of the American Civil Rights Movement is the African Americans’ Civil Rights Movement. They sought to address and rectify the generations-old injustices of racism by employing the nonviolent resistance which they believed to be modeled after the life and sacrifice of Jesus Christ. The African-American Civil Rights Movement put up a decade of struggle long after slavery had ended and after other milestones in the fight to overcome discriminatory, segregationist practices. Racism obstructs America’s desire to be a land of human equality, and the struggle for equal rights was also a struggle for the soul of the nation. 从电影《白宫管家》看六十年非裔美国人人权运动:http://www.lwfree.cn/yingyu/20170807/11999.html
