    I had never seen this documentary before this morning. Up early with the pups, I watched this in its entirety. Very compelling. If you are into films that document the thoughts and feelings of people at a particular time in American history, you should check this out. The passion of the people against the Vietnam War, and against the protesters of this war, is very telling. The intelligence of the young Black men, former servicemen is evident. Their thoughts are clear. So are the thoughts of the Black protesters who demonstrate against the war. The Black women remind me of the courageous Black women of this modern day movement. Brave, strong, clairvoyant. Less thoughtful are the voices of the white people who speak out against the protesters. Their thoughts and worldview are reminiscent of many conservative white people today. How little things have changed since the time this film was made. That's why I love documentaries. They capture a moment in time and issues of the day. They document the points of view of everyday people who, when asked, offer their passionate opinions. This documentary is a timepiece. It made me want to get back onto the streets with a camera and talk to people; ask them how they feel; what they think, and why. Watch it if you have the time, if only to hear the views of mostly Black people weigh in about civil rights in America during the height of the Vietnam War. Listen to them point out the contradiction of America's values. I appreciate the honesty expressed here, and wonder the fate of many of the people who appear in this doc. Shout out to Winston Williams for sharing the link to this doc. I had never seen it nor heard of it before this morning. Appreciate you, Bro. https://youtu.be/KoYLRNfpg7I
