I thought the documentary was great. As a child growing up in Mississippi in the 50's and 60's, segregation was just the way it was. I didn't know about prejudice and hatred of blacks. It wasn't until I got out into the "real" world that I understood what blacks had been through. We had a black maid that helped around the house 2-3 days a week. We treated her like anyone else. I never feared going into her neighborhood to take her home.
Over the years I have taught mostly black children. Each year they ask me what things were like when I was growing up. Some of the questions they ask, I just have to say, "I don't know." I try to stress to them how far they have come and how far they can go if they apply themselves.
However, I do have some children that are bitter and express it openly. I feel that there are some parents/grandparents who are trying to keep racism alive. Just the other day, I had a third grade student to tell me, "I hate white people. I wish I had a black teacher."
I think Myra did a wonderful job creating this film. I would like to have a DVD to show my children at school.
