American Beauty: Directed by Sam Mendes. This came on TV and I couldn't change the channel. I remembered seeing this in the theater and being blown away. It's still a great film even after all these years.
The 1968 Olympics Black Power Salute: African American athletes Tommie Smith and John Carlos raise their fists in a gesture of solidarity. Both Americans were expelled from the Olympic Games. #BlackPower #Olympics
"American Beauty" (1999). Lester Burnham, a depressed suburban father in a mid-life crisis, decides to turn his hectic life around after developing an infatuation for his daughter's attractive friend. This movie is much darker than I remembered. However, it's also very good. Kevin Spacey and Annette Bening head up the cast.
this is probably one of the most depressingly heart-wrenching photos. Native American children taken from their familis and put into school to assimilate them into white society. The slogan for this governmental campaign '"kill the Indian to save the man". no official apology has ever been issued. Never forgotten.
