A documentary about the courageous young men and women who endured beatings and even a firebombed bus, to challenge Jim Crow laws segregating bus depots by race. Because of their actions, the Interstate Commerce Commission forced bus companies to either racially integrate their depot lounges, rest rooms, etc. or shut them down.

There's some footage of a heavily armored 1964 International Harvester Loadstar bought by the Mississippi State Police Department as an attempt to intimidate civil rights marchers that was shown in the PBS documentary "Eyes on the Prize."

Didn't see anything like that in this one, Ddey, just the Chevy paddy wagon:

BTW maybe I or someone else should try to get images from "Eyes on the Prize"? It would be a good way to get Rosa Parks' bus in our database if it's not here already.

Good point sixcyl, at one point, we see a 1961 clip of then-attorney general Robert Kennedy predicting that we'd one day have a black president!

Well, our second last president thought for his most lifetime, that he was born in Romania as his older brothers and sisters, until he had found out, that he was in fact born in Poland.

Andre Malraux wrote Obama is only half black. So is not more black than white. ;)

I can't wait the day when France will have an arab president. It will be the end. :D


A lesbian half arab-jewish laic woman of the left wing for President at the Rebublique Française, I vote for ! :D

Andre Malraux wrote And why not a mentally retarded candidate with no political/economical program?

In fact, these ARE the real ones. Impossible to find anyone without these chracteristics.

I immediately thought of George W. Bush when I read Andre's comment there.
