Against All Odds - A must see !

Greetings - Civil Rights Activists:

I watched this documentary on PBS yesterday, done by Journalist Bob Herbert and found it to be one of the most Thought provoking, honest, & poignant showing of history, Racism and the many ways it has and continues to effect our community.  I strongly feel that everyone who professes to work in the Civil Rights Community should view this film.  I also feel that the NAACP Branch should buy the Video from PBS as a way to donate to them and then reserve the Central Library auditorium for a showing of the film.  We can reach out to all of our churches and to OUR neighborhoods to show this documentary to our family & friends and others.  Afterwards have a dialogue especially with our children to see if we can begin the process of ending violence in our community.  We will have to show this movie again and again, and ask our churches to sponsor either the Library or another location.  If you have not seen this, I encourage you to take time out to watch.  It is about 1 hour in length.  POWERFUL!
