Quotes

Himself - Interview: It is difficult, all these years afterward, to understand and appreciate the atmosphere of fear that reigned throughout the South when the Civil Rights Movement was in full flowering. I reported in the South, and I reported in Vietnam, and I was twice as scared covering the South as I was covering Vietnam.

Excellent Documentary!!!!
10 August 2005 | by sal97527See all my reviews

This is a story which is long overdue! Director Paola Di Florio does an excellent job of telling this riveting story. It is a real eye opener to all fellow Americans who look to our government to serve and protect. The one thing I have learned from this story is to "QUESTION EVERYTHING!!!. Every American citizen should see this film, it is a film that tells a story of a woman dedicated to truly living the constitution of the United States, and loving all human beings regardless of race or creed. Her family is truly blessed with the beautiful legacy left by their mother. I feel the perspectives given by the four grown children in the film, bring a very personal aspect to the film, and help the viewers understand exactly who Viola Liuzzo really was.
