Great documentary. Cudos to the author, Mary Stanton, 29 October 2004
Author: ibjc

This was a compelling and emotional documentary, and woke me up to how white folks involved themselves in the rights movement at great personal risk. Viola Liuzzo really "didn't have a dog in this fight" yet despite her family obligations felt strongly enough about the injustices in the South to get involved. I met Mary Stanton, the author of "From Selma to Sorrow", the book the documentary was based upon at the premiere showing. I was so impressed with her passion she had for Viola's untold story and the way she researched the material, I bought and am reading the book. The documentary took a slightly different tact than the author, in that much of the film was seen through the eyes of Viola's children, especially her daughter Mary. This added a good deal of human interest.
