There is a lot that can be said about the civil rights movement. We can learn about the mistakes made, the hopeful moments, the painful ones, the revolutionary ones, the big mistakes and many others. Civil Rights was a very difficult subject to get the message across, especially in the 60's. This documentary takes you through the day to day lives of the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People), and the Jim Crow laws in the South. The movie tells you how the civil rights movement came into being, how it ended, and how it all came about. We see how the protests against segregation in the South in the 50's were put on hold, how many people joined the movement, and how the civil rights movement was on the rise. It is interesting how some people still remember their youth during the time, even when the history is old. The movie is filled with many interesting interviews and some really amazing photographs, all of which are part of the documentary. Some of the photographs are extremely disturbing, and many people have strong opinions about the role of the media in the country today. We see how some news media actually contributed to the ending of the civil rights movement. We see how news media is like a dictatorship. The movie also shows you how the Jim Crow laws were put into place, and how they were a very harmful part of the civil rights movement. It shows the problems that people faced in the South and how they were portrayed. This movie is a must see.
