The presentations Tuesday were great! I loved coming in dressed as a Native American and seeing all the reactions that people were giving me for not having a shirt on. :P The dishes that we all had were very appetizing and highlighted the presentations even more. Below is the link for At The River I Stand. Unfortunately, the only link that I could find to the video only shows the first 5:39 minutes and the only way to get to watch the whole thing is ordering it for $25 on DVD. :( The clip that it allows us to see is very moving as it is though. The url is: http://newsreel.org/nav/title.asp?tc=CN0007
There is a little more information about the film below the clip and it really makes me want to purchase it just so I can watch it but it's a problem when I don't have the money to spare. This class has been an eye opener for me. I didn't think that there were so many problems in our society that I didn't know about. This makes me wish that there was no inferiority within our set of races and that all of the issues with social class would be obliterated. I know to many that would sound communistic and undemocratic, but this country is not run under perfect democracy as it stands anyway. I could rant for days about the various things that are messed up in this country and all over the world, but this website isn't quite big enough for me to do so and I don't exactly have the time to waste my breath knowing that it won't change. I love Professor Warren and the way that she teaches and I am sad that she is moving away after the semester is over because I have told so many people about this course and wanted them all to get taught the exact same information that I have learned from her. This information is something that I will hold dearly for the rest of my life and her words will be passed down in my family for generations to come.
