Cadillac Records by Darnell Martin ( Visual )
25 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 1,244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Chess Records was located on the south side of Chicago. In 1947, it began recording blues music with Muddy Waters and Little Walter. This eventually gave birth to rock and roll in 1955 with Chuck Berry. Record producer Leonard Chess has an ear for this different type of music and believes he can cash in by signing up new talent such as songwriter Willie Dixon, Howlin' Wolf, and Etta James. Chess makes all of his artists part of his family and takes care of them. This is not easy since they spend a small fortune on booze, drugs, and the high life. When Chuck Berry goes to jail, Leonard is able to find another talented performer, Etta James, to take his place. In the late sixties, as their music goes out of favor, Leonard Chess gets out of the record business

Cuba Gooding, Jr. plays Dwayne Johnson (D.J.), a counselor at a women's correctional center who dedicates his professional life to helping young people reclaim their own self-respect through selfless service to others. The incarcerated young women in the center come from troubled, often violent, backgrounds. Many of them belong to gangs and have been involved with illegal drugs. In the words of D.J., 'They come in here so broken. These are girls who've been abused and objectified their whole lives.' Salvation for many of the young women comes in the form of 'Crew Nine,' an elite band of volunteers who battle forest fires, help build hiking trails in remote areas, and assist during natural disasters. D.J. encourages the program, believing it can change the way they see themselves--to feel strong, to see other people respecting their strength. Thanks to his presence and guidance, these young women come to realize they have a future, and they are in charge of it
