Music Of Freedom
16 November 2001 | by (El Dorado, Arkansas 71730) – See all my reviews

There was a lot of bigotry, in this movie. Everyone should have a right to vote. No matter what race or ethnic group, America was based on freedom. At the end, when they were singing in jail, I liked it, when the deputy or jailer told them, "If they didn't stop singing, he was going to take away their mattresses." They replied "No problem Brother." You can take my mattress away, because I'm going to let it shine.
