I loved the fact that the whole movement was non-violent. Even when beaten, they did not strike back. It takes an amazing about of self restraint to be hit without fighting back. This is the thing that stuck out the most to me watching this movie for the second time. Also it was inspiring how many "white" people were helping out with the freedom rides. I believe in the cause but I honestly cant say if at that period in history if I could have had the courage to do what they did in support of desegregation. I am glad I got to watch this documentary again because I picked up on alot more that I missed the first time.

  1. I agree with the part about there self restraint. I could only imagine how bad they wanted to fight back in anger, pain and sadness, but chose not too because what good would that have done.
