Several of the interview subjects in this documentary bring up the point that Harry T. Moore has been ignored by history. They believe this has happened because Moore was killed before1954, the year most historians identify as the starting point of the civil rights movement, and before the widespread use of television brought the civil rights struggle into the nation's living rooms. As a result, Moore, and others like him who fought for civil rights before 1954, are not recognized on the Civil Rights Monument in Montgomery, Alabama. Should the civil rights timeline be expanded to include figures like Moore? Let us know what you think by participating in our on-line poll.
