about lalee's kin legacy of cotton
28 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't understand why even during black history month 2005 this movie is still unobtainable for purchase. HBO has done a tremendous effort to air this movie so that education, I repeat, education, is the key to a better future for our children as well as children all over the world. We all must sacrifice to make this happen. I was so moved by this movie that not only do I want to personally contribute to the school systems suffering as depicted in the movie, but I will make a personal effort to sponsor book drives, music teachers, art teachers as well as materials, instruments and plenty of patience, sweat and money. I have already shed many tears. Those who represent our lives in this film deserve our recognition, even if only in prayer.
