Simply Amazing -- Breathtaking and Thought-Provoking
This work is breathtaking. The ability of Anna Deavere Smith to transform herself convincingly into a myriad of people who talk about their experience of the Los Angeles riots has to be seen to be believed. She makes us listen to and care about what people from a wide range of vantage points have to say. I defy anyone to watch this all the way through and not be moved and challenged. It should be required viewing for all high school and college students, as well as anyone who wants to better understand this tumultuous event in American history.
