Glory (1989)

Washington proved he was an actor to be reckoned with in Glory. As an escaped slave who takes up arms against the Confederacy in this Civil War drama, Washington had the most memorable, and painful, scene in the film: his character, Trip, is brutally whipped after stealing a pair of shoes. He endures the degradation, which he described as “a nightmare of American history” with stony, silent defiance. When one tear sprung from Trip’s eye, there wasn’t a dry eye in the audience.
