I was sure it was going to be just another civil rights movie, but I was mistaken, 1 September 2013
Author: Shannon Butler from United States

When this movie was suggested to me because of my never ending pursuit of cultural studies, supported by my degree in African and Latino Studies, I was quite sure that this would be one of those Hallmark specials that only moved the souls of individuals who have some prior knowledge. I must say though that I was mistaken and found myself clicks away from wanting to contact the man who wrote the book that this movie is based on. You can be a novice to the civil rights movement and still be able to grab the concepts and notions being presented to the viewer. I felt moved to the point of as the verdict in the case was about to be read aloud in the courtroom, I almost stopped the movie because I didn't want to face the verdict. This movie kept me brewing, kept that flame I have lit fanned, and made me thankful for our triumphs but still yearn for the work that still needs to be done. It is a jarring concept that this movie is set in our society a mere 50 years ago.
