Review both!!
1 July 2000 | by (Mitchell, SD) – See all my reviews

This movie is a must see for all who are interested in accurate info on the civil rights movement. It was featured on movies in time on the History Channel. Although I enjoyed this movie it left me with a void, which the movie Ghosts of Mississippi filled. Neither can be watched without also seeing the other. Both are a must see for all who want a fuller picture of the events surrounding this great man's life, even if some of it may include a little hype by the movie industry.
