The Butler - A movie that makes you think

Went to see The Butler last week. In my opinion Forrest Whitaker gave an Academy Award performance. Oprah was excellent as well. The movie, which tracks the civil rights movement, took me back to my high school days. Hard to believe how blacks in this country were treated only a few decades ago. Wondering if the people who see this movie will be limited to those who actually believe all men are created equal or if those bigoted souls among us so desperately in need a wake-up call will go as well. Here's hoping.
