I have a literay anylisis to do on a film or book of my choosing.  I wanted to do it on this movie however know that I actually think about it I can't name any of the actors or actresses or the name of the movie...I watched it when I was in high school so I'm seeing if I can get any help on this

 Also I don't think that it was a documentary, and the movie was in color

here is what I do remember.

Its about African Americans, civil rights, I remember that MLK was portrayed in it, along with the KKK, burning crosses in people's yards...it was based in the south, and there was a march across a bridge towards the end of the movie.

 

I know that it wasn't "Mississippi Burning" or "A Time To Kill" or "The Rosa Parks Story"

 

I appreciate your help

I seem to want to say that there is a little girl in this movie, but I can't be sure

I can think of two off the top of my head:

King with Paul Winfield and Cicely Tyson

Separate But Equal

My husband may know the names of a few more and I will ask him tomorrow. Do you recall any of the actors or actresses?
