Movie Has A Good Message About Standing Up For What's Right
Richard Kelly was in jail because he tried to stop the violence in some riots, but he didn't and got sent to jail. One of the police officers had to go to the hospital. Instead of staying in jail, he got probation, but he had to go to an All-White Seminary. Richard met a man named Sam, who was the grounds keeper. Sam helped Richard a lot, taught him a bunch of things. Richard's roommate was from Texas and a very nice guy that was on his side. Richard called him 'Tex'. Richard had a friend named Roscoe he grew up with, but in the end, Roscoe died because he made a lot of wrong choices, including dealing in drugs. He also killed an old man because he wanted the man to sell drugs for him and the old man would not let him. Richard had to get a petition signed with 70% of the students & faculty agreeing so that they would let more blacks or people of other races into their seminary within 10 days. President Beckett of the seminary started out on Richard's side, but in the end, was not. He ended up getting kicked out of the seminary for trying to bribe Richard to not do the petition. This movie does have violence and people smoked a lot. I didn't like that part. ----------------------------------------- Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson Publishers as part of their BookSneeze.com book review bloggers program.
