This documentary goes over and provides the facts and visuals of the Civil Rights Movement capturing big moments and the little ones that made a difference in the country. It tells the story like being there and watching and learning. I love filmmaking and this was a eye opener for me and possibly for others with the visuals and the sounds working together to open the minds of the viewers. Telling the big stories like the Albany movement and the college students going to school and these just show the racism and hardships those people had to go through to just have and equal life as others.
A deep interview with Dr.Martin Luther King Jr on the Civil Rights Movement and the people in it all wanting the same thing for African Americans all over the US. He talks about how it goes back and that people are living in the past and not thinking of the future. He talks about the innocent killings and lynchings and exposes the KKK and knows they have to be stopped and something just must be done. I personally found the interview interesting to listen to and agree with Dr.King and it’s good to hear his deep personal passion behind it and not just the speech he’s known around the world for.
Different types of Literature tells different perspectives of any situation. With this poem and the authors opens up on the horrors and dreadful sights of the deaths of the black people. The poem has repetition of “I am..” showing that everything in the Civil Rights Movement is done by the people in it. The voice of the people grew stronger with the literature and the depth of how dark and beautiful it is.
Through the writing and works of the author and the images exploits the harshness of the racism against the black demographic, but you see the fight and stand from the large African american community and the power that they fought. For the years of oppression against them.
Peniel Joseph's opinion article opens up on the specifics and the inside of the black rights movement and the power and logistics and believes in the movement and so do so many but Joseph goes into details and intends to impress and inform the reader about more facts then what most people know about the black rights movement.
The article opens the piece of the Albany March where so many African Americans protested asking for jobs and demanding freedom for the lives of every African American. It shows the life and uprising and the spark of the Civil Rights Movement. I personally enjoyed this because of how you can see the progression of life between then and now. It taught me more facts that I had not known before and the the suffering of the people that just wanted freedom is hard to read but it’s a big part of American History that we as a people can learn from.
