I wept and cheered through it all!
28 October 2015 | by (Atlanta, GA) – See all my reviews

This movie was like stepping back in time. My husband and I grew up in Alabama during this time frame and experienced pretty much everything in the film; segregation, desegregation, race wars and the Jesus Revolution. These events are not exaggerated! They actually happened not only at Woodlawn but in cities all over America. They happened in the schools and churches in our town...this is truth and we personally have never recovered from that time period...when God showed up. Must see story! Billy Graham came to our little town...David Wilkerson came too...This film accurately and poignantly portrays a vivid spiritual awakening that we could certainly use a heavy dose of right now in this country.
