- A good addition to music documentaries of the era 3/27/2019 12:00:00 AM by TigerHeron
Yes, a couple of the interviews could have been pruned. I'm sure a lot of viewers would probably want to skip to the second half of the movie that is just music. But the townspeople speaking about the event, and the archival footage, show imagery of the 60s era that many young people today probably know nothing about. It also shows the two sides of the South, both the racism of the government and the goodwill of ordinary people. The most amazing thing is that almost half a million people gathered with no law enforcement to speak of and no one got hurt. This would be unheard of today.
