Mahree Bok lives on a farm in South Africa. Her father is a policeman who cannot hide his joy when activist Steve Biko is caught by the South African authorities. Piper Dellums is the daughter of a US congressman from California and who lives in a nice home in Washington DC.

I'm going to bed. And you should, too. School starts tomorrow. Falling asleep in class on the first day of school is frowned on here in America. I know, because I've done it.

If you haven't seen this movie, I think you should see it. I love this movie and also cried at the end when I read the truth about the movie. You need to see it so you can find out what happened then and is still happening today which is wrong. I have a world history teacher who told me that he is not African American. He said that he is, "AMERICAN," just like me and that the only thing different from him and me is that he has darker skin then me. We both do the same things(well almost I mean he is older then me), we both have friends no matter who they are.
