Still very relevant even after all these years
17 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"With All Deliberate Speed" is a work that still has relevance even 52 years after the Supreme Court's decision in Brown v. Board of Education. And, the film has added meaning for me, since I grew up in Prince Edward County, Virginia, living in the town of Farmville. While I was too young to remember the exact details of May 17, 1954, I do remember its most fateful aftermath for me, the closing of the Prince Edward County public schools.

In the spring of 1959, I had just completed the 3rd grade and was looking forward to a long Southern summer. What I did not know was that during the next 3 months, the county school board would close all schools in the county rather than integrate. The next fall I began attending classes literally put together in a matter of weeks.

"With All Deliberate Speed" takes me back to those early days and presents a side of this time in our history that needs to be remembered. I commend the producers of this film for effectively exploring this subject matter and helping me to better understand this turbulent period of my own childhood. It is a time I will never forget.

This film should be seen by everyone.
