So today we went to see the movie. I believe we also saw the movie with the entire congregations of a few (predominantly African American) churches.
I absolutely loved the movie. The parts that had me laughing out loud in the book delivered. The parts that moved me in the book, moved me in the movie.
I think that we (especially northerners) forget that this period of history existed. Remembering this is important.
That... and the movie was just a great movie!
