Words and music tell important story

By Gail K Beil

from Marshall, Texas

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS Independent Lens: When I Rise DVD:

This account of Barbara Smith Conrad's ability to overcome the bigotry of mid-century Texas is matched not only by her talent and triumph and her return to the University of Texas to nuture young talent such as Icy Simpson but also to receive the accolade from the Texas Legislature some 50 years after she was spurned by the same body. Gripping story.

Comments about PBS Independent Lens: When I Rise DVD:

After seeing this on PBS I knew it needed to be added to the videos I've collected for my grandchildren re: prejudice and discrimination during this time period.
