L.C. ANDERSON HIGH SCHOOL TRIBUTE 13:1967 YELLOWJACKETS YEARBOOK:SOPHS-AND THE CHILDREN SHALL LEAD

MY SELECTION NO. 13 FOR BEST MOVIES OF THE SIXTIES AND SEVENTIES IS
"AND THE CHILDREN SHALL LEAD"
STARRING "DANNY GLOVER", "PAM POTILLO", "BEAH RICHARDS,
LAVAR BURTON", "DENISE NICHOLAS", AND "ANDREW PRINE"!!

PLOT:  Can one young girl ease racial tension in her Southern town? "You can't trust them with voting," says the sheriff about blacks in his community. It is 1964 in the segregated town of Catesville, Mississippi, and Rachel, who is black, and Jenny, who is white, are best friends caught up in the firestorm surrounding black voters and inevitable changes that are surely coming; trying to hang onto the old ways of dealing with their differences.  It will take the courage and friendship of the two young girls to overcome the racial barriers that divide their community.



PLEASE CONTINUE STROLLING DOWN MEMORY LANE WITH THE SOPHOMORES....
