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.

Nice follow up to movie ..."Separate but Equal"
http://www.amazon.com/Separate-But-Equal-Sidney-Poitier/dp/B00008RV0D

Separate but Equal is a excellent USH video for Brown v BOE / Plessy v. Ferg.
My students (low motivation students) were quite interested in following the Supreme Court ruling... Long but worth it.

We watched this in my Sociology class and I can honestly say it's the only movie I have ever actually went out to buy after watching it in school. It's a great film with wonderful camera work and directing. It's real. I love how the documentary gets both sides of view in more ways than one. I really feel like I understand so much more now about the lack of equality we still face in America and what I learned in this documentary I know I will always remember and continue to think about and try to incorporate the positive changes into every day life.

Got the video to help out my very visual ESL students reading Worrior's Don't Cry written by one of the Little Rock 9 Melba Patillo. I was under the impression that the video dealt more with the actual coverage of the events of the historic event but was surprised to see a lot of information on Little Rock's current situation and well lack of "intergration". Aside from this it is a handy tool to get the kids more involved in the book and start up some topics related to the book and current events. Overall not bad.

Excellent video! I showed it to my students and we had great discussions. Many of the students were upset at the way the school were divided, but realized who should they be mad at! Really enjoyed it!!!

I used this video to spark discussion at a teen meeting for girls. I thought more video of the original Little Rock incident would be included for shock value, however, the current Little Rock students provided enough information on education blockers for 21st century Afro-American teens. The participants enjoyed the film. The delivery was excellent, no problems.

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.
