PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Long Walk Home is set in Montgomery, Alabama, during the 1955 Montgomery Bus Boycott. The movie centers on Whoopi Goldberg as Odessa Cotter, an African-American woman who works as a maid/nanny for Miriam Thompson, a well-to-do white woman played by Sissy Spacek. Odessa and her family confront typical issues faced by African Americans in the South at the time: poverty, racism, segregation, and violence. The black community has begun a widespread boycott of the city-owned buses to end segregation; Odessa takes on a long walk both ways to work.

The Movie does an excellent job of humanizing the ordeal of the bus boycott for the students.
