Adapted from a 1933 stage play and proclaimed "one of the most sensitive films about black life ever made in this country," Nothing But a Man tells a story whose realism and universality needs no embellishment. Duff Anderson, a black railroad worker, falls in love with and marries schoolteacher Josie, but their marriage is threatened by Duff's struggle to keep a steady job while fighting for his dignity in a world of economic and racial inequality. As pressures personal and societal bring the tension in Duff's life close to breaking point, will his marriage to Josie be his ruin or his deliverance?
