Chess Records was located on the south side of Chicago. In 1947, it began recording blues music with Muddy Waters and Little Walter.

Rachel "Nanny" Crosby er kvinnen som bygde et fellesskap og omgikk raseskillepolitikken på sin helt egne og målbevisste måte. Som en god blues slår denne filmen an toner som er både smertefulle og vakre – like levende i livets tunge stunder som i gleden. Filmen kommer direkte på video. I IMBd får den karakteren 7,6/10
