Reflection on Mississippi BurningPosted by in Humanities 10 on Tuesday, February 28th, 2012 at 3:33 am
During Humanities lesson we watched a movie “Mississippi Burning” . It is about “Civil Right” the topic that we are learning now. Mississippi Burning was based on the events about murders of three Mississippi Civil Rights workers in 1964, two FBI was finding the murder, one of the Mississippi Civil Rights workers is Blacks. There were many bulling, terrible scene in the movie, it shows Civil Rights is a serous problems in America. Ku Klux Klan (KKK) is a group of Whites who disagree about giving freedom to the Blacks. The Blacks in the South don’t want to talk to the FBI about the missing Civil Rights activists is because they are afraid of getting more troubles. The tactics that the KKK use to discourage is killing black people and burning their house and church. I think this is a good movie because I learned many things about the Civil Rights and we can clearly understand the life and feeling of the Blacks. The scene that I found particularly sad is when the black kid’s father were hang on the tree by KKK, the kid came and pray for his dad, this part can strongly feel about the religious of Blacks and the sadness. During that time, KKK try to use many different ways to try to stop the it, even killing Blacks and oppose with FBI. Actually there wasn’t many American disagree about the freedom, but a small group could cause many death and also affect the South of America.
