Movie Reviews

More than just Civil Rights
Akbar | Denver, Colorado United States | 03/20/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Civil Rights - may be a cliche' because there is not enough interesting information out there that captures ones attention without them feeling sad for a couple of days with no lasting effect. Danny Glovers film Freedom Song, shows the turmoil within the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee("snick")as well as the overwhelming odds without. The general public know Dr. Martin Luther King, but little about anything else. Truth be known, Dr King would have failed without the concerted efforts of the other groups such as SNCC. It was good to see the diversity of youth the way it really was. What a positive thing for our children of all races to see, how when you believe in something the price is very high, but attainable."
