Customer Reviews


This documentary should be installed to every library in this nation as a part of history that may be lost or discarded. With the recent Ole Miss disgrace, this docu displays why Mississippi is still stung with racism, even after 50 years have passed! This should be a companion with the recent PBS' documentary on 1961's Freedom Riders!
