While Roemer is particularly gratified by the positive response "Nothing But a Man" has received from African Americans, he insists that he didn't make the film to advance the cause of civil rights. "I believe that stories are very important," he says. "That they sustain life. And in that sense they're political, but only in that sense. I do want to be on the side of the angels. I know that. I don't want to destroy anything. But I didn't make this film for any other reason than I think it's a great story."
(THE VILLAGE VOICE, March 2, 1993)
