Disney had this BEAUTIful movie... I think it was called Harmony!. I would LOVE for my kids to see it. But I can not find it anywhere.
It was about an all white boys school and they had a famous choir. And there was a little black boy that was like the groundskeeper son or soemthing like that. Not really sure how he was there. But the one white boy became friends with the black boy and they had beautiful voices. They could just sing heavenly.
nad i always loved that movie and disney doesnt play it anymore.
Roots hasn't even come on this year. What about Queen? Brewster's Place? Not to mention all teh hallmark movies that have been made based off of true stories. I mean seriously they havent even played them on the hallmark channel.
Some of these stories i really want the kids to see, but man.
I think i am just tried of people knowing in and out Micheal Jordans record or Lebron jame's stats. instead of knowing WHY we have MLK day, Who Harriet Tubman was, Who Thurgood Marshall Was, Who Dorthy was...
But it just seems that none of that is important anymore. All that is is how many baskets so and so made in a game.
And it isnt just a black thing either.
it is a human thing because i must admit I almost passed out when one of the kids i was tutoring didnt know who Ronald Reagan was, Oh my personal favorite thought our vice president was name Dick Rumsfield.
When i think about how brillant my parents are. I mean that isnt just tooting their horns, my parents are smart people. But instead of being praised for being educated, they have been called sell outs by members of the community they grew up in. The same people that beg dad for favors all the time when he was a dentist but when he got sick, none of them could be found.
Yeah... it just.. ugh. i think this year i am just so annoyed that Wesley at 6 is so expressive and it just drievs me crazy seeing all the kids in his school that could just give a darn.
