Movie Reviews

A Great Look at America's Past and Present...
Marcus E. Sharpe | Los Angeles, California | 04/03/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A sad, but honest look at our American history. A non-scientific examination of the growing gap between the haves and have nots of this country."
Little Rock Central High 50 Years Later
L. Knopf | Southington, CT | 12/12/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I bought this video to coincide with my teaching the book "Warriors Don't Cry" by Melba Pattillo Beals. The information about the changes that have (and haven't) taken place at Little Rock Central High was very eye-opening. I enjoyed the contrasting viewpoints from one staff memember to the next regarding race and school performance. My students also formed a great understanding of the Little Rock community as seen by varying community members. The economic differences between races was particularly eye-opening.
The only complaint I have is that there was not much footage shown of Little Rock Central High throughout the years from 1957 to 2007. I would like to have seen more about the Little Rock Nine and students who followed, integrating the school in later years."
