I'm looking forward to seeing this documentary about the Freedom Riders of 50! years ago. I've seen clips and I have the book, it should be good.

That's going to be interesting! Thanks for the heads up.
Yup. Oprah did a 50 year reunion for the Freedom Riders just a few days ago, and the documentary was a part of it. Very powerful. Amazing what average citizens can do by just banding together for what they truly believe.
Not meaning to hijack, but another documentary that's also terrific is Tom Shadyac's "I Am." Both very important, in my estimation.
Thanks for the heads up, UW.

Yes, I saw that Oprah show. Very touching.
This week's American Experience was all about the music of the civil rights movement.
