We do know that every February the film gets screened in many classrooms around the country--usually in violation of copyright law, but hey, we're not going to report anybody--so that thousands of kids get to see what non-violent struggle is really like: black and white people taking a beating without fighting back. That was the brilliant strategy that won the passage of the first civil rights act, 50 years ago this year.
