Young student's documentary leaving audiences stunned

Kiri Davis is a young filmmaker whose high school documentary has left audiences at film festivals across the country stunned -- and has re-ignited a powerful debate over race.

Thanks for your comment on my blog. This is indeed a disturbing video. The funny thing is that when I was a child I had a doll at my gram's house and it was black.I couldn't have a doll at home because boys didn't play with dolls.

Wow!!! The results shown in this video are disturbing.

I work with the daughter of the young girl that was at the center of the "Brown vs. The Board of Education". We had to take a writing class at work. We all had to write a short story and read it to our class. She wrote about this event in her mother's life and how she overcame it. She wrote how her mother was the strongest person she knew. She had all of us in tears.
