Many of us have learned about the Montgomery bus boycott from our history books but this movie really showed the sacrifices the organizers and participants experienced. Homes were firebombed. People were harassed, arrested and sometimes murdered by the police. Hate groups like the KKK were intimidating citizens for exercising their right to boycott. People often look at the results of a boycott without thinking about the strategy, politics and sacrifices that are made behind the scenes. Great film!!!!
