| This video reveals the harshness of reality of Richmond Flowers, Jr. and Richmond Flowers, Sr. in the 1960s.
"Unconquered" is a significant video; I have used it as part of a thematic unit that I teach to freshmen in high school. It prompts a great deal of discussion about the civil rights movement and people's reaction to it. It allows me as an instructor to provide details about the church bombings, the killing of the priests, the murders of whites who assisted in the black cause, etc. So many of those situations can be viewed objectively when taught as part of history, but when they are taught in light of the Flowers' family story, it seems to get so much more response from students. My students are always very involved in the story. I just read that Richmond Flowers, Sr. passed away on August 9, 2007. My condolences to the family; ever since I saw "Unconquered," I have greatly admired his courage.

An afterthought: A number of years ago "Sports Illustrated" did a feature story on the Flowers family entitled "In the Name of the Father." My students read that too; It is well written and informative.
