Remember "Remember the Titans"

Had a sick baby yesterday so I was pinned under a big baby boy for about three hours yesterday having finally rocked him to sleep in our bedroom. We don't have cable, but I managed to watch a rather fuzzy version of Remember the Titans. I had forgotten what a good movie that is. It has its flaws, but it was both inspiring and a good way to help my girls understand the plight of black people in the south.

Too many depictions of racism are too brutal for kids. The racism in Remember the Titans was appalling without being inappropriate for six and nine-year-olds.
