3.5 - Funny how some things have not changed, even after 60 years of fighting. The police brutality, systematic segregation, even the sneaky arguments the other side has against equality movements, like the picket ladies used. A documentary that albeit the grim reality of it all, it still believes in hope, in unity, and in a better future. Truly inspiring and timeless.
Excellent snippet of the Civil Rights era... lovely music... astonishing to see Black citizens kicked out from the lunch counters, arrested, put in the back of police cars, and locked up. Exciting to see their allies cheer them on when they're released. A necessary document in the age of BLM.
A very fascinating look into the struggles of the late '50s that occurred in America. Some great footage that I've never seen before. Also some interesting snippets of speeches by Martin Luther King. This documentary actually plays like a newsreel than a true doc. It really has no structure other than to just document. This remarkable footage proves through great visual record how very far we've come in 60 years.
amazing compilation of footage back from the Civil Rights era that bears a striking resemblance to the world we live in today, this short docu is exactly what we need to see during this Black Lives Matter movement that aligns with the same beliefs African Americans were fighting for over 50 years ago. This goes to show that not much has changed from then and now, racism just has many disguises
