AN IMPORTANT and Inspiring film about COURAGE!

An IMPORTANT, and HONEST look at the true story behind the Little Rock Central High's Racial Nightmare in 1957. This STIRRING and INSPIRING film tells of the first nine colored students who enrolled in the ALL-WHITE school, and forced to stand up against hatered, the National Guard, and the Government. The strength of these nine students will inspire you and cause you to stand up and cheer, and then cause you to cry at the misfortunes they had to suffer to tear down the racial walls. This Brilliant cast will capture your hearts, and leave you feeling good. A MUST-SEE for EVERYONE! (Note: My mother was a student during this time, and has shared first-hand stories with me about this historical event. This movie has accurately portrayed events just as she remembered them). Morris Chestnut is out-standing in the role of Ernest Green, along with the other actors who portray his classmates.
