WHO IS THE most powerful black political figure in Baltimore history? Among the elected officials: Parren Mitchell? Kurt Schmoke? Clarence "Du" Burns? Among those behind the scenes: William ("Little Willie") Adams? Larry Gibson? Thomas "Tom" R. Smith?Who is Tom Smith? Why just one of the most powerful black political bosses in Baltimore history. On election days in the 1920s and 30s, white politicians would turn to him to help roundup the black vote for the Democrats. That was at a time when most blacks were Republicans.

Thomas R. "Tom" Smith, who was once one of the most powerful black politicians in the state, has been nearly forgotten today.At his death in 1938, he was regarded as one of the wealthiest and most generous blacks in Baltimore.In 1912, he opened Smith's Hotel at Druid Hill Avenue and Paca Street, which was described as "a shrine to Baltimore's Negro population," when it was torn down in 1957."Best known as a politician, he also was one of the staunchest guardians of his race in the city," said The Sun in 1938.

In an era when "crowd-pleasing" has become a disparaging term because of smash hits content to push sadistic or sentimental buttons, Seabiscuit dares to be great. This adaptation of Laura Hillenbrand's nonfiction best seller will move large audiences to applause and tears while deepening their feelings for the mysteries of character, the majesty of athletics and the thrill of our democratic culture at its best, when figures from nowhere become true popular champions. Boldly echoing the trajectory of the legendary racehorse who learned how to channel his herky-jerky energy into a fierce and indomitable running style, the movie starts out with an unusual gait, cutting among the individual stories of three men who took an unlikely animal from neglect to acclaim as a four-legged hero of the Depression.
