I loved this documentary. It looks lovingly crafted. Such rich history that was never taught to me in high school or even college when I took Black Studies. Incredibly enlightening AND entertaining history. Not always an easy feat to do, I'm sure. I adored the beautiful archival photos and footage of the second lines. The score is exquisite, too. I can clearly see where David Simon got his inspiration for the HBO Treme series. This is a must see for anyone interested in New Orleans, American history, music, and documentary film-making. The civil rights movement didn't start with Martin Luther King in Atlanta. It started in New Orleans in the 1800s!
