The Great Debaters

I kept saying that I needed to go to the movie theaters and see The Great Debaters. I didn't. However, on Saturday I ventured over to the neighborhood Blockbuster Video and rented it. Last night, instead of watching the Coca-Cola 600, I watched The Great Debaters.

What a moving story. It is an unbelievable production. Even at my youthful age, it brought back memories of the racial hatred that existed in the South in the seventies. However, the racial hatred that I witnessed was nothing like the racial divide and hatred that existed in the Jim Crow South in the 1935.

This is a must see.
