If you read about it, I don't think the black officer is ever at the meetings. He has a white cop do that via ear piece?

Disclaimer: I didn't watch the trailer.

Corey and I went to this Thursday. Very good story and had some funny parts throughout. Only bad thing is it just felt a little long. I'd recommend it!

This is the type of movie that will stay with you for awhile. I think it's probably the most important movie of the year. There was some comedy throughout, but no one was laughing at the ending. My theater was pretty empty, but no one was making a sound walking out of the theater, I bet the same happened for larger showings too.

I ended up putting this movie as #2 for my 2018 list. The movie is entertaining throughout, but I was not prepared for the last 20 minutes. The old man telling the story to the college kids of his friend being killed by a white mob and the news footage of how nothing has really changed since then.

Very powerful movie about racism in our country
