About this item

Words By Heart: In a small, mid-western town at the turn of the century, a heated racial dispute begins when a young African-American girl wins a local Bible memorization contest. Things get worse when her father's hard work earns him a job previously held by a white man. When the town's rage gets out of control, they lash out at the family in this tale of conflicts, values and morals. "And The Children Shall Lead": In honor of Martin Luther King's birthday, PBS' Wonderworks presentation of January 14, 1985 was "And the Children Shall Lead." Set in Mississippi in 1964, the 60-minute drama recreates the black voter registration drive of that year. The events are seen through the eyes of a young black girl, played by Pam Polito. Danny Glover and Denise Nicholas co-star as Polito's parents, who are encouraged to participate in local civil rights activities when the Freedom Riders come to town. Andrew Prine plays the requisite redneck white sheriff. ~ by Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide.
