This excellent entertaining movie is important. It shows that people who seem powerless can succeed IF they are working for justice. Unity and organization with a PLAN to improve their schools in a non violent way may sound theoretical. "Walk Out" showed the real humans behind it. Their relationships with each other, parents, teachers, and the community are made real to anyone who has attended school.
The police brutality of 1968 was dramatized so realistically. Misleading news reports played into the generation gap we felt then.
It LOOKED like 1968. From the clothing, hair styles, automobiles, and especially the teachers wearing short sleeve white shirts with a tie. Kudos to costuming!
This needs to be seen in theaters and sold as a DVD.
