Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: A kind of excavation and investigation of Mr. Wright's actions as a piece of civil rights history.
Fresh: [A] fascinating, must-see docu.
Fresh: "Booker's Place: A Mississippi Story" is in equal measure a look at two families, the ongoing legacy of America's recent past and an essay on one man's moment of transformative courage.
Fresh: Rediscovered historical footage plants the seed for a moving, beautifully crafted Civil Rights doc.
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!
