I remember this movie with great fondness
5 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this movie on HBO as a kid in the 80's. I can't really say the acting was great but I do remember wishing I could have live through that time to experience civil rights. The movie is told through the eyes of children, black and white who all got along, played together but also knew their place. When outsiders come to there town to register black voters friendships are tested and inevitable change is to come.

I was happy to find this movie on DVD and plan to show this to my class of 4th graders who I hope will enjoy this movie as much as I did when I was that age.
