| Great story line/Great morals
I was introduced to this movie by my late brother-in-law, "Kevin." We laughed hysterically at how badly his acting was (particularly his last scene. Rest in Peace.

The movie itself sends a great message. Set in the time of segregation, there is a group of kids who are blind to racism within their own group until they are affected by the adults around them. "And the children Shall Lead" shows us how the colorblind love of children could teach the adults a lesson or two. The children are so genuine, it gives hope to the future of segregated America, and made me feel truly happy to be born much later.
