Wow! What an awesome documentary; I identified so closely with the narrator; her growing up in Jackson, Mississippi, was so similar to my childhood in Olive Branch.....unaware, yet wondering...I can remember asking my Momma why we did not have black people in our church....red and yellow, black and white, all are precious in His sight, Jesus loves the little children of the world!
And, in the late 60's and early 70's I remember rejecting and rebelling against what I felt so strongly was wrong and not Biblical.....but practiced in our society.....mixture of Bob Dylan, Woodstock generation, reactions to King and Bobby Kennedy's assassinations.....I was a little younger than the narrator, I think....hippie generation....graduated from high school in 1970.
Wow....I want to send a copy to my sister in Columbus, Ohio. She left the South when she got married and has only been back a few times in the last 20 years.
My husband was asked by the teacher in charge of the Black History program at New Hope Middle School in Columbus, Mississippi, to find a film clip to use; He said, "If we can get this off of Hot Chalk, this is what I will give to Mrs. Lash."
P.S. I loved your ginko necklace; W alumnae will recognize that little touch!
