PBS has done it again very well done documentary series. This movie was interesting, informative, and worse seeing!! I recommend this movie for all to see. Well worth the price of admission to any theater.

A great reading of historical speeches!!

I would criticize that the speeches about oppression are presented in an opulent theatre to nearly all white people though.
