I was talking to a Czech friend of mine today and we began discussing racism in the south. I explained the Jim Crow laws to him, segregation in schools (and later integration), the "whites only" and "colored only" areas... and he didn't believe me. He couldn't fathom any of it and would like to know more about this, but through movies (due to his limited English).
I found some Youtube links, but would like to give him some titles to movies. I've already told him about Malcolm X, but he would also like to see something on Martin Luther King, Jr.
