Powerful, even decades later
15 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

I saw this documentary only once, when I was about 8 or 9 years old, and shortly after it came out. I was in second grade, in a segregated school in Houston, Texas. They were in the process of mandating integration in the school, and our teacher showed this to our class. to help us understand why integration was important. I had only seen Bill Cosby before on "I Spy", and had always liked him more than the other characters because he seemed so nice and funny. In this, he was stern and angry, and made an incredible impression on me. I felt ashamed for how whites had treated blacks in America, and vowed then and there that I would do better. I like to think I have. I still think about his righteous anger from time to time. I am amazed that his message made such an impression on me, and that I still remember this piece, almost 40 years later.
