Can't Miss Snapshot of Civil Rights Success
25 September 2012 | by (Fort Worth, Texas) – See all my reviews

Director Robert L. Camina chronicles a small city police force's raid of a gay bar on the 40th anniversary of the Stonewall riots. The Raid that threatened to set back human rights in Fort Worth, Texas because an example of peaceful resistance, the effective use of mainstream and social media, and of the power of compassion and decency to change the culture in one of the reddest cities in one of the reddest states. This film is a testament in the American human rights struggle. Camina follows the bar's patrons -- including a former journalist, a certified public accountant, and straight woman caught up in the turmoil while out with her boyfriend through an evening that changed their lives and their struggle to find both the answer to why it occurred and the way of ensuring that it never happens again. The film also watches a new police chief learn quickly how to create a poor first impression. This documentary is a must see again and again.
