The Hidden History of America.
on February 14, 2012
I watched this movie on last night on PBS. It opened my eyes to things I knew nothing about! As a child of the 50's I heard on and off about things that happened during this time in American history. As I watched this movie it brought tears to my eyes to see how one human being could treat another human being and not think nothing of it.
My grandparents were sharecroppers in the south and had to sneak their 5 daughters to the North one by one as young teenage girls because 2 of their sons were lynched at a young age.
I never knew that it was against the law to leave your farm as a sharecropper you would be hunted down, brought back or killed.
I thank God that my grandfather and grandmother did not have their lives taken away from them because they both made it to the North, but their lives where never the same.
This is apart of history that everyone one in this nation should know about.
