Pick your movie of the week: Segregation (June 24-30/18)

Segregation is an embarrassing reality in the  recent past of western culture, and we’re still dealing with the ramifications of it today. I don’t believe in ignoring evils of the past as a way of dealing with them, so in that spirit, let’s acknowledge great films that deal with this part of history.

I felt like The Help (2011) would be too easy of a win, though the following are excellent movies for us to pick from. Which one would be your pick?

A Soldier’s Story (1984)

Mississippi Burning (1988)

42 (2013)

Selma (2014)

  1. 42
    Troy…I hope you know how much I enjoy and look forward to your blog..it makes my weekend.
    Thank you!!
    And Happy Father’s day!

  2. Mississippi Burning…it’s the only one of these I’ve seen. These are the hardest movies for me to watch. They leave me feeling sick to my stomach…which I guess is a good thing.
