Lori Jackson is a magnificent hero. WOW!
26 November 2005 | by Norm-98See all my reviews

I believe we cannot deny rights to anyone and still have rights for the rest of us. It is appalling to me that the hatred of the Ku KLux Klan is in existence. But it is. I am pleased that this movie is put on the screen to educate the rest of us as to this type of racial hatred. I applaud the directors of this film for portraying the human side of the persons who experience this kind of treatment. In my mind they are real heroes and deserve to be held up as real advocates, as this movie does. This movie drives that home in a very special way. In the courageous tenacity of women like Rosa Parks, Lori Jackson steps out as a champion of the downtrodden and stands tall and makes me proud to have witnessed her undying spirit to redress a grievous wrong. Thank you for the fine portrayal. I highly recommend viewing this film. It is an 11 in my book.
