Little Red Pocketbook

"Little Red Pocketbook" tells the story of the brave students attending the all-black Adkin High School in Kinston, NC, in 1952. Under a segregated educational system, many disparities existed between Adkin and the all-white high school, Grainger. Adkin students were forced to learn from hand-me-down textbooks, share one microscope in science class, and attend school for an entire decade without a gymnasium. Even with all these hardships, the Adkin Pirates loved and respected their school. In order to fight for the learning tools they knew they deserved, the student body staged one of the first walkouts at the forefront of the Civil Rights Movement. Their legacy has helped shaped the course of history in Kinston, and now it is finally time for the world to know.

I absolutely love this movie. I have seen it 2 times and every time I see it, I get goosebumps. I don't know why ,maybe is the narrative or the music.

This was just what I needed to finish out the day. Funny, scary, and somehow a feel-good movie. Take the time to watch this, especially if you have had a bad day.
