who will get us there?
30 April 2018 | by monte-haywardSee all my reviews

"If Lincoln didn't get us there, and Dr. King didn't get us there, and Bobby Kennedy didn't get us there, what the hell is left to say, that's going to have a rude awakening, to make a nation alive, and to greet the better part of itself? But we have to keep trying. And that's what Bobby Kennedy was really about. He was trying to find a solution."

-- Harry Belafonte

fwiw, this netflix documentary was better than wormwood in that there were zero re-enactments.

many times throughout this 4-part documentary, bias was shown in the form of choice of music, narration, and sequence. it did linger on some moments and ultra-compress others. what remains is a moving and largely factual account.
