In 1965, 21-year-old Torontonian, Paul Saltzman drove to Mississippi, volunteering as a civil rights worker with the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee. He was arrested, spending 10 days in jail. He smuggled letters out of jail to the Toronto Star. Canadian Foreign Affairs requested his release but Saltzman declined. Posted to one of the toughest segregationist towns, Greenwood, he helped disadvantaged sharecroppers register to vote. He was assaulted by a young Klansman. In 2007, Saltzman returned to find the KKK member who had punched him in the head, to explore if individual reconciliation was possible. He found him and a 5 year dialogue has ensued.

Morgan Freeman: Right here in this segregated backward society, I got one of the best educations reading Shakespeare and Chaucer, Longfellow, Wadsworth, in the 8th grade.

A frightening glimpse into our past but hopefully not our future.
3 March 2013 | by patriccasweSee all my reviews

This film is tough to watch but compelling enough to see through to the end. It has wit and charm along with the harsh realities of both the 60's and (unfortunately) now.

I highly recommend this as a work that should be used in schools to show our upcoming generations how far we have come and how far we still need to go. Brave, thoughtful and brutally honest.

Take the time to view this wonderful piece of work with your family and your friends to keep the discussion going as to how best relate to one another as human beings without regard to race,religion, eye color, height,age, gender, sexual preference, shoe size or any other arbitrary way that has been used to discriminate and hate-monger. Rather, hold yourself to a higher duty to show your true humanity by being the best of who you can be, and demanding that of your entertainment - not just appealing to the lowest common denominator.
