    Emotional, immersive experience
    This was a very hard film to watch because you're in the room with Mamie Till while she experiences everything that she does, you're feeling everything that she must have felt (if you don't have ice water running through your veins). It's basically an immersive experience of what it must have been like being black in the American South (and Chicago) in the 1950s and it's harrowing.

    This is the kind of film that should be shown at schools and town houses. It's a lesson in empathy and a reminder of what a white supremacist regime looks like in unadulterated form. What's scary is how much hasn't changed, both in the U. S. and the world at large. How the same sort of group dynamics at play back then have people voting for the extreme right in this day and age. I'm very worried about the state of my country and the rest of Europe with more and more extreme right politicians getting voted into office but simultaneously the powerlessness that I and others feel is very relative compared to what the people portrayed in this movie went through. And they still fought back, which is the inspiring part.

    A moving movie
    Made me wonder throughout the movie...have white people really changed or is it more hidden today (racism) The latter seems more acceptable.

    Being a non white myself I know how it feels to be seen as a non priority whether its work or any other situation.

    The movie is thought provoking, similar to many other movies made about the black struggle during white supremacy. I don't know if these movies actually make any sort of difference but I do like to watch em

    This one like many others prove a point, i just.hope the the point makes the difference it needs to. Whether you are black, Indian or Asian this struggle needs to stop.
