Rise Up: Mickey Leland

The Mickey Leland documentary illustrates former U.S. Congressman Mickey Leland humanitarian advocacy for poor people in his Houston, Texas congressional district and for poor, homeless, and hungry Ethiopian people. This documentary film presents a compelling portrait of the former Congressman who died in a plane crash with other American and Ethiopian passengers en route to a refugee camp in Ethiopia. Leland once stated, I am as much a citizen of this world as I am of this country...I grew up on a Christian ethic which says we are supposed to help the least of our brothers." A friend said of Leland, "He was most comfortable in the barrios, ghettoes and refugee camps."
