Infuriating and depressing at the same time. But is says something for Nixon, who is not on my hit parade, that he actually took some time to talk to the protesters, which I can't imagine the Cheeto-moron ever doing!

It was also useful, and again infuriating and depressing, to be reminded of the subsequent attack on Jackson State.

More people should watch this. Could this happen again? What do you think?

Very good documentary. I was a teenager in the sixties, so the film reminded me of a lot that happened at the time and it also informed me of things I hadn't known.

Retelling of the tragic and politically charged events which led to the moment that the country's division over violent intervention elsewhere in the world resulted in violent clashes on its home soil. I may have missed it, though, but I didn't particularly pick up the reason why the soldiers began to shoot at the students in the first place. It was probably implied, but it would have been great, if possible, to hear from, even in anonymity, one of the soldiers that was among those who opened fire.
