Birmingham, Alabama
We watched Bending the Arc: The Vote last night. Superbly done! I learned things I did not know, even though I have read about it and listened to people who were there. I'm so glad you are doing this. I grew up in Tallapoosa County, away from the centers of protest. What we knew was mainly what aired on the news. I remember hearing the adults talk with concern about "outside agitators," and people "causing trouble" and saying they were trying to move things too fast, etc. (not to mention the fierce resistance to school integration!). This film record of people who were on the front lines of the effort is very important. It was moving to watch.
