I just enjoyed seeing the move Amazing Grace (the 2006 movie about William Wilberforce, not the 2018 Aretha Franklin movie).

The movie was rated PG for "thematic material involving slavery, and some mild language".

The "language" was mostly the use of the N-word (by participants in the slave trade).
