A documentary that gives an excellent illustration of the Civil Rights Movement
29 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was an amazing movie.

It depicted a lot of footage of Rosa Parks, E.D. Nixon Jr., and many people who were related to Rosa Parks.

It gave me a very good picture of what it was like back in 1955 and during the Montgomery bus boycott.

The movie also came along with a booklet that had a copy of the original police records and also a copy of the Montgomery City Code.

It also had classroom-related discussions and questions that you should ask yourself/your class.

The movie had some reenactments; you couldn't really tell that it was not from the 1950's, as they used vintage cameras and the actors looked much like the original people.

I would definitely recommend this amazing documentary to anyone who wants to learn about the Montgomery bus boycott and the Civil Rights Movement.
